VolkerStevin awarded £23M super sewer enabling works contract

VolkerStevin has been appointed by Thames Water to carry out enabling works ahead of construction of the Thames Tideway Tunnel.

VolkerStevin started work on the contract last month, which involves a number of marine construction projects in London ahead of the main tunnelling project.

VolkerStevin managing director Rob Coupe said: “This is an exciting project and one we are proud to be a part of. After a successful early contractor phase, we are delighted to continue working on this important scheme, which will benefit Londoner’s for years to come.”

Tideway chief operating officer Mark Sneesby added: “We are pleased to be working with VolkerStevin to deliver this important preparatory work in advance of the main tunnelling project next year. It’s great to see work actually beginning on what will be an exciting construction project.”

The £4bn Thames Tideway project to build a super sewer under London received a major boost this summer with the selection of an investment consortium to finance and manage the mammoth scheme.
