We are proposing to use Chambers Wharf for thisconstruction work and to accommodate permanentstructures required to operate the main tunnel. The sitewould be used to drive the main tunnel to Abbey MillsPumping Station and receive the main tunnel fromKirtling Street; and to connect three existing local CSOsto the main tunnel via a long connection tunnel. Thethree CSOs are known as Greenwich Pumping Station,Deptford Church Street and Earl Pumping Station, andthe long connection tunnel is known as Greenwichconnection tunnel.
