Acton, Barnes, Shadwell and the West End all played host to Thames Tunnel engagement events on Thursday 14 June.
Approximately 70 people attended a public meeting in Acton, where the project team explained the conclusions of the recent second phase of public consultation.
Across town in Shadwell, Phil Stride (Head of London Tideway Tunnels at Thames Water) and Richard Aylard, the company’s External Affairs and Sustainability Director, answered locals’ questions on why the foreshore at King Edward Memorial Park remains a preferred construction site for the project, needed to help tackle the discharges of sewage into the River Thames. They are pictured with the local MP, Jim Fitzpatrick (right), who chaired the meeting.
A busy 24 hours for the project team also featured the second day of exhibitions at the London Wetland Centre and Northumberland Avenue, off Trafalgar Square, giving members of the public their opportunity to find out more about changes at local construction sites, proposed in the light of the second phase of public consultation.
