Leading wet civil engineering company, Land & Water, has completed its works as part of the Thames Tideway Tunnel project to transport and unload the London Clay mined from the new ‘super sewer’ tunnel to its Habitat Creation Scheme in Rainham. 

Carried out on behalf of client AC Bennett & Sons, who are employed by the BAM Nuttall, Morgan Sindall, Balfour Beatty joint venture delivering the west section of the new 25km tunnel, through the use of river barges they have removed over 25,000 lorry movements from the roads of London transporting 850,000 tonnes of material from the main drive site for the west section at Carnwath Road Riverside in South West London to Land & Water’s Jetty at Coldharbour Lane where it was then reused to help regenerate natural habits.

The west section of the Thames Tideway Tunnel project has contributed over 450,000 tonnes of material to Rainham. This will encourage greater areas of greenery along the Thames corridor and see up to six million tonnes of wet and dry spoil material imported to create an oasis for birds and wildlife. ​
