£4.2bn 'super sewer' to stop raw waste being pumped into Thames
30th May 2014

It’s a project that estimated to cost £4.2bn but would stop raw sewage overflowing into the River Thames on a weekly basis. 

The London ‘Super Sewer’ project would see the contraction of a 15 mile system underneath the city snaking through 11 boroughs between Acton in west London and Abbey Wood in east London. 

Work could begin as soon as 2016. Reporter Alex Beard finds out more.
