"The Thames Tideway Tunnel will create a new foundation for London to continue to grow and be one of the world's most competitive cities. Once completed this project will have a transformational effect not only on the River Thames itself but also the way Londoners, and visitors to the city, use the river for generations to come. The legacy of the project is staggering and will mean London's sewerage system will be able to serve the city for at least the next 100 years."

Peter, as Programme Manager, is involved in all aspects of the project and during his time on the programme team has led CH2M's work with the client Thames Water in progressing the route development, tunnel engineering, stakeholder engagement, planning consents and will shortly be working, as part of the embedded Thames Tideway Tunnel Ltd team, in overseeing construction of the 25km sewer relief tunnel.

Speaking about the delivery of the tunnel, Peter says: "The technical challenges of this project are huge, navigating our way through London's complex underground infrastructure network and tunnelling up to 65 metres below ground. However, these are the type of challenges we enjoy tackling head on and the Thames Tideway Tunnel is an engineering project with technical innovation at the core of every aspect of its design and construction.”
