The Thames Tideway Tunnel : Preventing Another Great Stink, Paperback / softback Book

The Thames Tideway Tunnel : Preventing Another Great Stink Paperback / softback


In the 19th century the Great Stink made much of London along the River Thames uninhabitable.

Sir Joseph Bazalgette saved the city with his amazing interceptor sewer system, but since then the capital has grown exponentially and today faces a renewed threat from major waste water pollution in the river.

Tackling this is the Thames Tideway Tunnel, one of the UK's largest ever underground engineering projects, to be built beneath the River Thames and truly the 21st-century inheritor of Bazalgette's sewers.

This fascinating book describes the journey from the Great Stink to the modern-day solution designed to prevent the same disaster ever happening again.
