Tunnel update

Work at the Greenwich Pumping Station site has progressed well this past year.

They have successfully launched Tunnel Boring Machine Annie and are now on their way to creating the 4.5km Greenwich connection tunnel, from Greenwich Pumping Station to Chambers Wharf in Bermondsey.  Annie has already successfully tunnelled through 4.5m of ground and built 5 rings, as pictured below.

The site is now closed and will restart on 4 January 2021.

Site security staff and CCTV will remain in operation, as will the 24-hour Tideway Helpdesk, which you can contact to speak to a member of the team, sign up for email updates from the site or find out about community liaison working group meetings. 

In the new year they will continue tunnelling throughout 2021.
