GreenwichPumping Station
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 Greenwich Pumping Station.

Key facts
Local authority:
CSO name:
Greenwich Pumping Station
CSO spill volume in an average year:8,300,000m³ (equivalent to approximately3,320 Olympic swimming pools)
Site type:CSO and Greenwich connection tunnel drive site
Duration of main construction works:Approximately ve and a half years.
Greenwich Pumping Station
We are proposing to use the site of our existing pumpingstation for this construction work and to accommodatepermanent structures required to operate the maintunnel. The site would be used to connect the existinglocal CSO, known as the Greenwich Pumping Station CSOto the Greenwich connection tunnel, which would directflows into the main tunnel.The Greenwich connection tunnel is a long connectiontunnel which connects the CSOs at Greenwich PumpingStation, Deptford Church Street and Earl Pumping Stationto the main tunnel at Chambers Wharf. We also need aworksite from which we can build this tunnel, which wepropose to drive from Greenwich Pumping using landadjacent to our pumping station at Phoenix Wharf.The location of the site is shown in Figure 1A andsurrounds the existing pumping station building. NormanRoad and Norman House are to the east of the site. Tothe south is Greenwich High Road (A206), to the southwest are recently built flats and to the west is DeptfordCreek and the Greenwich Industrial Estate. To the north of Phoenix Wharf are industrial units. The elevated DocklandLight Railway (DLR) also crosses the site. The site isadjacent to the Ashburnham Triangle Conservation Area.
Section 1: Introduction and site information
Related documents: Build
This site information paper sets out our proposals atGreenwich Pumping Station. We have also producedproject information papers, which cover overarchingtopics relating to the project. Where we consider that aproject information paper is particularly relevant, we havehighlighted this in a related documents box. At the endof this site information paper is a list of other documents,which may be of interest and a glossary of terms.
How we chose this site
What we proposed at phase one consultation
Through our site selection process, we identified twopossible shortlisted sites to intercept the GreenwichPumping Station CSO. At phase one consultation, whichwas held between September 2010 and January 2011, wepresented these sites:
Foreshore (near Greenwich Foot Tunnel)
Greenwich Pumping Station.Greenwich Pumping Station was identified as ourpreferred site at phase one consultation.
What we are proposing at phase two consultation
We have considered the comments from phase oneconsultation, feedback from ongoing engagement andnew information; and undertaken further technical work.We still consider that
Greenwich Pumping Station
shouldbe our
preferred site
because we own most of the siteand although the Pumping Station is a Grade II listedstructure, the proposed location of our works (to the northof the pumping station site) greatly reduces any potentialeffect upon its setting.
