Barn Elms
Currently, untreated sewage regularly overows into the River Thames from London’s Victorian sewerage systemvia combined sewer overows (CSOs). The proposed Thames Tunnel would intercept these overows through theuse of a new storage and transfer tunnel, which would link west London and Abbey Mills Pumping Station. Thesewage ow would then be transferred to Beckton Sewage Treatment Works via the Lee Tunnel. The reductionin untreated sewage entering the River Thames would bring long-term benets for the environment and users of the River Thames. In order to deliver the project we need a number of sites along the route and this documentidenties our current preferred site at Barn Elms.

Key facts
Local authority:Richmond upon Thames
CSO name:West Putney Storm Relief 
CSO spill volume in an average year:34,000m³ (equivalent to approximately14 Olympic swimming pools)
Site type:CSO site
Duration of main construction works:Approximately two and a half years.
Barn Elms
We are proposing to use the south eastern corner of theBarn Elms Schools Sports Centre for this constructionwork and to accommodate permanent structures requiredto operate the main tunnel. The site would be used toconnect the existing local CSO, known as the West PutneyStorm Relief, to the main tunnel.The location of the site is shown in Figure 1A. The ThamesPath and River Thames are located to the east of the site.To the north are some of the Barn Elms Schools SportsCentre pitches and facilities. Putney Lower Commonis located to the southwest. At the most southerlypoint of the site are Beverley Brook and the BeverleyBrook footpath, which separate the London Boroughsof Richmond upon Thames and Wandsworth in thislocation. The site is adjacent to the Putney EmbankmentConservation Area. The site also includes a maintenancesite access road that would link to Queen Elizabeth Walk.This site information paper sets out our proposals at BarnElms. We have also produced project information papers,which cover overarching topics relating to the project.Where we consider that a project information paper isparticularly relevant, we have highlighted this in a relateddocuments box. At the end of this site information paperis a list of other documents, which may be of interest anda glossary of terms.

How we chose this site
Main tunnel
What we proposed at phase one consultation
Through our site selection process, we identifiedthat a main tunnel drive site was required betweenHammersmith Bridge and Albert Bridge. At phase oneconsultation, which was held between September 2010and January 2011, Barn Elms was identified as beingappropriate for this purpose and was presented as ourpreferred site. We assessed other sites but only Barn Elmsmade it through to the shortlist stage of the site selectionprocess.
What we are proposing at phase two consultation
Since January 2011, we have considered the commentsfrom phase one consultation, feedback from ongoingengagement and new information; and undertakenfurther technical work. As a result, we have re-assessedpotential main tunnel sites and our tunnelling strategy forthe main tunnel. We have now identified Carnwath RoadRiverside as the most suitable site. Therefore Barn Elms isno longer our preferred site for a main tunnel drive site.
