Thames Water has announced that they will be holding three new exhibitions on plans for their proposed super sewer – The Thames Tunnel.
The new exhibitions will be part of the 14 week public consultation period and will be held at the sewer’s proposed construction sites.
It is hoped that the exhibitions will give concerned parties an opportunity to see the scale of the works and see how it may affect them.
The new exhibitions will be held at:
• Barnes, WWT London Wetlands Centre, Queen Elizabeth’s Walk – Oct 20th and Oct 21st between 10am and 8pm.
• Bermondsey, Time and Talents Association, The Old Mortuary, St. Marychurch Street – Nov 5th between 9am and 7pm.
• Vauxhall, Park Plazza Riverbank, 18 Albert Embankment – Nov 6th between 10am and 4pm.
The Head of London Tideway Tunnels, Phil Stride, stated:
“We want to give everyone an opportunity to tell us what they think, either by attending one of our exhibitions or visiting our consultation website. At this stage we haven’t got all the answers but through this consultation and speaking to people with local knowledge, we aim to get them.
“The consultation will run until Christmas, and there will be a second consultation next year. Until then no final decisions will be made.”
