Tideway Tunnel Diversions Kirtling Street

Route type: Diversion

The Thames Tideway Tunnel is a major new sewer, urgently needed to protect the tidal River Thames from pollution. 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. The project has a number of worksites along the river in central London with local diversions of the Thames Path. Construction has commenced and will last until around 2022.
The main diversions are at Kirtling Street, Albert Embankment Foreshore, Blackfriars Bridge Foreshore and King Edward Memorial Park. Diversion details are included in the plans.
