18.2.1

This section describes the construction and operation of the proposed
development at Shad Thames Pumping Station. Plans of the proposed
development at this site, including the construction phasing plan and
permanent works layout, are contained in Section 18 of the Section 48:
Book of plans. A table listing the changes to the proposals as a result of
the phase two consultation can be found in the Section 48: Pre-application
publicity report. The proposed Code of construction practice, which sets
out the measures that would be applied throughout the construction
period,forms part of the documentation being published at the Section 48
stage.

Construction activities

18.2.2

The proposal is to control the existing Shad Thames Pumping Station
combined sewer overflow, which currently discharges approximately 15
times in a typical year. It would not be intercepted by the main tunnel, but
flows would be indirectly controlled by the works at this site. The total
volume discharged is approximately 92,000m3

in a typical year. The

existing sewer is shown on Figure 18.1.

18.2.3

The works include modifications to the pumps and internal pipe work,
demolition of the existing three storey facilities building behind the existing
pumping station, construction of a new electrical switchgear and facilities

building, provision of new pumps, modifications to existing sewers and
construction of a new vehicle access to Maguire Street.

18.2.4

The construction phase would last approximately one and a half years.
Most of the surface level construction activity would take place from 8am
to 6pm Monday to Friday and 8am to 1pm on Saturday.

18.2.5

Vehicle access to the site during construction would be via Jamaica Road
(A200), Shad Thames and Maguire Street as shown on the construction
phasing plans for this site (see Section 18 of the Section 48: Book of
plans). The suspension of parking in Maguire Street would be required
when sewers are modified in Maguire Street, although local access would
be maintained.

18.2.6

The construction activities at the site would be managed in accordance
with the proposed Code of construction practice. This document specifies
the measures the appointed contractor would have to follow in order to
reduce the effects of the construction activities on the surrounding area, in
relation to noise, dust, traffic, contaminated land, waste management,
water management and approach to ecological and heritage issues.

Operation

18.2.7

With the proposedmodifications in place and operational, in a typical year,
this would reduce flows from the combined sewer overflow to an average
volume of approximately 71,300m3

, four spill events a year.

18.2.8

A new electrical switchgear and facilities building would be present on site
and together with the existing pumping station include all relevant pumping
and electrical equipment (see permanent works layout plan in Section 18
of the Section 48: Book of plans). A small diameter ventilation column
approximately 9.5m highwould be located at the southern end of the new
building. The site would not be publicly accessible. There would be no
change to the type of operational maintenance involved with the existing
pumping station.

18.2.9

A visualisation illustrating how the completed works could be developed is
provided in Figure 18.3.
