In our application for development consent this site intercepts the Putney Bridge combined sewer overflow (CSO).

The Putney Embankment Foreshore site is on the southern bank of the River Thames. It comprises two sites: a main construction site, with the second used as a temporary slipway to maintain public access to the Thames. The locations of the sites are shown below.

Construction is assumed to start in 2016 and be completed by 2020. Where appropriate some advance works may be carried out before the main construction period.

Work includes construction of underground structures to connect the CSO to a shaft approximately 36 metres deep with an internal diameter of approximately six metres. This shaft would be constructed within the river foreshore at the main site, and would transfer sewage flows from the CSO to the main tunnel.

While most of the operational structures would be underground, two electrical and control kiosks and two ventilation columns would be required.


Please refer to the application documentation on the Planning Inspectorate’s website (link below) for full details of our proposals for this site.
