Negotiated procedure, deadline 10th September, 2007 to provide programme management services to support the planning, design and construction of the Thames Tideway tunnel. The programme management service will support Thames Water's management of physical, timeplan and cost issues and where appropriate, provide additional technical expertise to assist with the management of the design and delivery of the project. The Tideway tunnel is a large diameter, major sewer interception scheme in London, which will collect flows from 35 combined sewer overflows (CSO) which discharge into the River Thames. Over 30 km of approximately 7.2 m-diameter tunnel will be constructed, 35 CSOs will be connected to the tunnel and a terminal pumping station will transfer flows to treatment at Beckton sewage treatment plant. Construction is expected to commence in 2009 and complete by 2020. Read E-News Weekly 25/2007, 13/2007, 47/2006, 2/2006 & 17/2004. Click here.

As programme manager, CH2M HILL will help Thames Water to implement the project through all phases, including planning consents, preliminary and final design, construction oversight, stakeholder communication, commissioning and start-up of new facilities. Click here. Visit www.ch2mhill.comThe Thames tideway tunnel project will involve the construction of London's deepest ever tunnel - the Thames tunnel - up to 80 metres beneath ground level, and spanning 32 kilometres beneath the river from Hammersmith in West London to Beckton, in East London. An additional tunnel - the Lee tunnel (7 km) - will run from Abbey Mills in Stratford to Beckton. The tunnels will capture and transfer sewer discharges for treatment, which would otherwise enter the Thames and its tributaries during heavy rainfall. Both tunnels will be more than seven metres wide, running beneath a vast network of existing tunnels, including six subway lines and utilities. The overall programme includes constructing numerous collection and diversion facilities, a large high-head underground pumping station, and a major upgrade at Beckton sewage treatment works. Construction of the Lee tunnel - for which tenders have already been invited - is expected to start in 2009. Click here. The tunnel is due for completion by 2014. Construction of the Thames tunnel, which will prevent discharges from 35 overflow points, is not expected to start until 2012 with completion in 2020. 13/08.Heath Lambert Ltd of Houndsditch, London has been awarded the EUR20 million contract for insurance brokerage for the Thames Tideway project which includes the 32.2 km-long, 7 m-diameter Thames tunnel from Hammersmith to Beckton and the 6.9 km-long Lee tunnel from Stratford to Beckton. Tunnelling is expected to start this year for completion by 2020.
