Thames Water has been given the go-ahead to start building London’s ‘super sewer’ which will tackle the sewage pollution in to the tidal River Thames.
The 25km tunnel will run underground from Acton in West London, and travel roughly the line underneath the river to Abbey Mills Pumping Station in East London, where it will connect to the Lee Tunnel. Its construction means water bills will rise £70-80 by the mid 2020s.
