Thames Tunnel Local Meeting Update
Amended plans outlined to Councillors and residents
There was a meeting last Thursday evening in the Scout Hut, Rugby Road, about the possibility of Thames Water constructing storm tanks in Acton and Chiswick with the aim of reducing pollution in the Thames.
Local councillor Andrew Steed attended the meeting and reports on some of the issues raised.
Andrew said: “Thursday night was well presented and informative, with an effective Q & A session which most people seemed satisfied with. As the second stage of the Consultative Process has been delayed, we await publication of a great deal of information, which will be released next month. However, we were brought up to date on the amended plans which involve a widening of the intended [Thames] tunnel, and given an estimated schedule for the consultation process and opportunities to comment up to the start of works in 2017.”
Below is an example of how the Warple Way site could look after construction has finished.
