STEM ambassador Patrica Tumwine and pupilsThe project team is focused on finalising our application for Development Consent, which is on schedule to be submitted to the Planning Inspectorate in the first quarter of 2013.

Meanwhile, we’ve also been busy out and about across London to explain the project to a range of interested groups.

On 23 January, Phil Stride (Head of Thames Tideway Tunnel) focused on the project’s legacy potential at a special seminar organised by the Greenwich Maritime Institute.

The same evening, Malcolm Orford (Construction Delivery Manager) was the guest of the Richmond Scientific Society for a presentation on the technical challenges associated with delivering the project.

Our work to engage young Londoners in the career path opportunities arising from major projects, such as the Thames Tideway Tunnel, is also gathering pace.

On 13 January, Patrica Tumwine from our environment team (pictured) was a speaker at an ‘Aspiration Day’ for girls from Plashet, St Angela’s Ursuline and Sarah Bonnell schools in Newham.

Finally, on the last day of January, Roger Bailey (Head of Asset Delivery) visited the Paddington headquarters of engineering company Skanska for a talk to graduate trainees on the detailed plans for constructing the tunnel, involving work at 24 sites across the capital.
