In our application for development consent this site is used to drive the main tunnel to Abbey Mills Pumping Station, receive the main tunnel from Kirtling Street and receive the Greenwich connection tunnel from Greenwich Pumping Station.
The Chambers Wharf site is on the southern bank of the River Thames. It comprises brownfield land, an area of the foreshore and areas of highway. The location of the site is shown below.
Construction is assumed to start in 2016 and be complete in 2021. Where appropriate some advance works may be carried out before the main construction period.
Work includes construction of a main tunnel shaft approximately 58 metres deep with an internal diameter of approximately 25 metres. This shaft would be constructed on the eastern side of the site behind the temporary cofferdam and behind the existing line of the river wall.
While most of the operational structures would be underground, ventilation structures and kiosks would be permanent above ground features.
