Tideway Tunnel /Super Sewer

Work has now started at the Acton Storm Tanks site between Larden Road and roads to the north of Bedford Park. The work is planned to take four years. The tunnelling will start from the Carnwarth Road site near Hurlingham and the tunnelling machine will work towards the north west end of the tunnel, which will be at the Acton Storm tanks. All the spoil from the tunnel will be taken back down the tunnel and loaded onto barges on the river. The work at the Storm Tanks involves building a very large shaft down  to what will be the end of the tunnel , big enough to extract the tunnelling machine. Storm Tanks 5 and 6 are being emptied and will be removed as part of the construction work. Eventually tanks 3 and 4 will be covered over and tanks 1 and 2 will remain to be used only in the very unlikely event of the tunnel becoming full. There will also be a 15m high ventilation shaft.

Ruth Cadbury has stated her opposition to the scheme.

Local Businesses Launch Website

StamfordBrookStreets

 

The local businesses of Stamford Brook have formed an organisation to co-ordinate developments and represent them in discussions with local authorities in order to bring about benefits and positive changes within the area.  Called Stamford Brook Streets, the new initiative has been driven by the owners of recently opened Artisan Coffee.

The group meets once every two to three months at different locations/businesses around Stamford Brook, and anyone is welcome and encouraged to come along and join us.  This friendly and diverse group has already had some great successes and with every person that joins, it gets stronger and the ideas to improve the area continue to flourish
