Thames Tideway Tunnel - Transforming 3 months ago   08:17

Once completed the Thames Tideway Tunnel will be Europe’s longest and deepest continuous tunnel, travelling 25km through central London to intercept untreated sewage discharges that spill into the tidal Thames and pollute the city’s iconic river. The Thames Tideway Tunnel will create a cleaner, healthier River Thames and improve the quality of life for all Londoners.

The city of London has the Crossrail project, a new business and living area at Nine Elms, and this massive clean river project !!!..yet, wtf, is the US doing?....I don't hear of any Grand infrastructure plans here in the US...while the UK is a fraction of the GDP of America..?!!
Talk about PC bullshit. They couldn't have got more females or Ethnics if they tried.
Amazing project. But not a word about its cost!!

Britain is now a 3rd world country. not too many western countries release sewage nowadays. sad

What a load of uninformed and trouble-seeking comments there are here. Oh wait! It's the internet. That explains it. Good project. Long needed.
Chicago has a similar project. It's called the "Deep Tunnel". It works pretty good I think.
I know, filter the water to death! filter the thames to death! clean the balls out of it

In the 1990,s Miller Tunnelling put a new storm water tunnel from , "Abby Mills pumping station to Beckton works" to allivate this very problem.

Need to create a bacteria that will eat all the sewage.

eh! were the brits and visitors going mad with the smell of fecal matter coming from the London area.
In very rainy conditions all the water will go to Beckton where it will be treated before being discharged into the Thames. Human waste can still leave some viruses and toxins intact even after treatment so maybe not the best idea to spread on crops. Industrial wastes can sometimes contain heavy metals and poisonous substances if the discharge is not properly policed. In 1878 the Princess Alice sank after a collision with a Collier with the loss of 650 lives. It was unfortunate that just before the sinking, beckton works had just discharged raw sewage into the river nearby. Those that weren’t drowned immediately succumbed to various infections due to the filthy sewage in the river.

Britain has been auctioned off to the highest bidder, just look at the state of Our Railways, a mess riddled with GREED

Technical accomplishment, though it is, the tunnel too much encourages too many more people, to live in London, to the detriment of the development of the shires :-)

Sorry but why is sewage being discharged in 2018? Sewage can be treated and used for agricultural fertiliser, and cities the world over are using treatment technology to process human waste productively. What a backward and bandaid solution project.
