London’s sewerage system is no longer fit for purpose and spills millions of tonnes of sewage into the tidal section of the river every year. Tideway will build the tunnel to tackle the overflows from the London’s Victorian sewers into the River Thames for at least the next 100 years, enabling the UK to meet European environmental standards.
