The £4.2bn Thames Tideway Tunnel project is delivering a major upgrade to Londons sewerage network. A new tunnel will be constructed from Acton in the West, to Beckton in the East to reduce CSO discharges into the River Thames. 24 construction sites are required for the project with 11 locations spread along the river where the sites are required for the tunnel construction.
A 500m long marine jetty was required at Hinkley to allow materials to be delivered to site for the construction of the new nuclear power station. The marine jetty is supported on tubular steel piles with prefabricated steel sections forming the roadway. Precast concrete deck panels were installed on top of the steel roadway sections to form the finished jetty.
