Thames Water’s proposed Thames Tunnel – the Super Sewer designed to prevent sewage flowing into the Thames – is unlikely to have its entrance in Ravenscourt Park, a public meeting heard this week.
Te huge engineering project, providing relief to the river, needs a huge entrance which Councillors and locals have been vigorously objecting to. It is needed to mee EU guidelines on water quality, and needs an entrance, about the size of four football pitches, somewhere. During the meeting Thames Water said the entrance was “highly unlikely” to be in Ravenscout Park, but didn’t disclose where it might be instead.
LB Hammersmith & Fulham Council Leader, Cllr Stephen Greenhalgh, added: “For the first time – thanks to this public meeting – we have got an assurance that Ravenscort Park is ‘highly unlikely’ to be the starting point of the super sewer”.
