Thames Tunnel Project Comes To Chiswick Pier House
Opportunity for residents to speak to Senior Project Manager Malcolm Orford
Chiswick residents will be given the opportunity to speak to a Senior Project Manager working on the Thames Tunnel at Chiswick Pier House on November 23rd at 7.30pm. This will be the only chance residents will have locally before the end of this phase of consultation.
Residents will hear about the construction of the Thames Tunnel – a massive project to substantially reduce the volume of untreated sewage discharged from London’s Victorian sewers into the River Thames.
Thames Water say the problem is getting progressively worse, and they plan to build the Lee and Thames Tunnels to ensure the city has a sewerage system fit for the 21st Century and beyond.
The Chiswick Pier Trust have invited Thames Water to come and talk about the project so that all interested parties have the opportunity to understand and influence its development.
The talk takes place on Tuesday November 23rd at the Pier House, Corney Reach, W4. Doors open at 7pm and the event will start at 7.30pm. Originally there was a charge for this event but it is now going to be free for the general public. Thames Water are now also holding an exhibition at Chiswick Pier on Saturday November 20th between 10 and 5pm.Chiswick Pier and Chiswick Pier House are at the end of Corney Road and Edensor Road, Chiswick, W4 2UG.
The talk is part of a series organised by the Chiswick Pier Trust, a charity that puts people in touch with the River Thames.
