Thames Tideway Tunnel – Preparatory Works At Blackfriars Bridge

As I walked along the river from Cannon Street, I noticed what looked like a small oil rig in the middle of the Thames.


t is actually a secondary site that is being used to develop a new Millenium Pier as the old one is in the way of construction works for the new Thames Tideway Tunnel at Blackfriars.

It was good to see that they are putting up pictures of what they are doing.

This picture clipped from this page on the tunnel website, shows an impression of what the completed works will look like.

Blackfiars Bridge leads off over the river at the top right of this image.

When completed there will be a public space with shops and a cafe.

The web site for the Thames Tideway Tunnel is impressive.
