Thames Tunnel second consultation set to allay fears

New consultation documents on the Thames Tunnel, due to be released next month, should allay some of the fears of local community groups opposing the mega-sewer storage tunnel project, Thames Water has said.

A Thames Water spokesman said it is hoped that some groups will find that their concerns about the impact of the project are pacified by the content of the consultation documents. The second phase of consultation will provide more detailed information on the proposed project than the first phase, which ended in January this year, he said.

Thames Water said it was unable to confirm the exact start date of the second phase of consultation because final preparations are still ongoing, but said it was aiming for early November. The company originally hoped to start the consultation in September and finish by Christmas, but it was then pushed back to October before being moved again to November. Thames Water said in August that preparing consultation materials for all work sites was taking longer than anticipated.
