The UK 's largest water company, Thames Water, has appointed CH2M HILL, in association with Halcrow, as Programme Manager for the proposed London Tideway Tunnels and Project Manager for the Lee Tunnel.
Two major new sewer tunnels are planned to substantially reduce the volume of untreated sewage overflowing from London 's Victorian sewers - currently some 32 million cubic metres each year, enough to fill the O2 Arena almost 15 times. Required to ensure the UK complies with Urban Waste Water Treatment Directive the tunnels will make the River Thames and its tributary the River Lee cleaner and healthier for wildlife and for people.
The Thames Tunnel, stretching some 32km (20 miles) under the river through the heart of London from the west of the city over to Beckton in the east, will intercept the sewage from the 34 most polluting "Combined Sewer Overflows" (CSOs), built into the existing system, before it enters the river. Construction is due to commence in 2012 and is expected to take approximately eight years to complete.
The Lee Tunnel stretching seven kilometres (four miles) from across east London from Stratford to Beckton will stop sewage discharges to the River Lee from a CSO at Abbey Mills. This tunnel will capture over half of the total volume of sewer discharges that currently make their way into the Thames . Construction is expected to be complete by 2014.
Together the Lee and Thames Tunnels will be one of the most ambitious, challenging engineering feats ever undertaken in modern-day London . They will have a combined capacity of 1.6 million cubic metres.
The deepest tunnels ever constructed in the capital (up to 75m beneath ground level), the diameter of both the tunnels will be wider than three London buses placed side by side.
