Land & Water associated with the Thames Tideway Tunnel project has announced that the works are done. This allows the transport and unloading of the mined London clay to shift to Habitat Creation Scheme in Rainham, from the new super sewer tunnel.
Land & Water has removed more than 25,000 lorry movements using river barges from the roads of London. It also helped in transporting 850,000 tonnes of material from the main drive site for the west section at Carnwath Road Riverside in South West London.
All the material was taken to Land & Water Jetty at Coldharbour Lane. The shifted material was then reused to help regenerate natural habitats. Land & Water has worked alongside the JV throughout the tunnel drive to unload barges supporting the delivery of the west section.
The project has been under construction since January 2018 and this latest project is part of Land & Water continued commitment towards safeguarding the environment. Nbesies, the firm also made investments in UK infrastructure to build sustainable solutions.
The Thames Tideway Tunnel project’s west section has contributed over 450,000 tonnes of material to Rainham. This move encourages greater areas of greenery along the Thames Corridor, and will see up to six million tonnes of wet and dry spoil material.
