Video | Engineering challenges for Thames Tideway super sewer

Footage obtained by New Civil Engineer of Thames Tideway London super sewer project engineering works

With the first tunnel boring machine set to launch in November, New Civil Engineer visited the key sites along the Thames Tideway project. 

Tideway deputy delivery manager (central) John Gullick, identified key engineering challenges facing the project including space constraints and challenging ground conditions.

The project is being delivered to increase capacity on London’s ageing sewer system and clean up the Thames at the same time. It is set to be completed in 2024.

Tideway has claimed that the project will create thousands of jobs, rejuvenate London’s river economy and create new public space.

Last year, Tideway chief executive Andy Mitchell spoke to New Civil Engineer about the project and why it is pushing boundaries in the construction industry.
