Independent commission to conclude on Thames Tunnel in coming weeks

Hammersmith and Fulham Council’s independent commission on the Thames Tunnel mega-sewer project will publish its findings by the beginning of November, just before public consultation re-starts on the project.

The commission was created this summer to examine fundamental questions around the necessity for the huge sewage storage tunnel beneath London. The second phase of public consultation on the project by water company Thames Water is set to start in early November, following two postponements.

On Friday, Hammersmith and Fulham Council reported that Thames Water head of London Tideway Tunnels Phil Stride had faced an audience of more than 200 local attendees asking questions about Thames Water’s plans to place a work site for the tunnel in their local area.

Stride told the meeting that no decisions have been taken yet about construction sites. He said the consultation was planned to begin on 3 November.
