Environment Agency backs Thames Tunnel

November 4, 2011

The Environment Agency has added its voice to Government’s support for the Thames Tunnel project, following a statement to Parliament by Defra minister Richard Benyon.The tunnel, which would run beneath all other infrastructure under the capital, would transfer the sewage that currently spills into the tidal Thames, to Beckton Sewage Treatment Works in east London, linking up with the Lee Tunnel, which is already under construction.
