UK-based construction and project management consultancy Turner & Townsend has been chosen to provide commercial support services for the £4.2bn Thames Tideway Tunnel in London.

Under the contract, the company will provide project and programme management resources for the super-sewer project over the next four years.

The 25km sewer tunnel — expected to be the second largest infrastructure project in London, after Crossrail — has been designed to reduce the millions of tonnes of raw sewage that overflows into the River Thames each year.  

Turner & Townsend’s director of infrastructure Peter Depledge said: "We're delighted to be playing a role in ensuring the timely delivery of such a huge and important project which will deliver a positive outcome for Londoners for generations ahead."

Thames Tideway chief operating officer Mark Sneesby said: "As we start main construction work on the Thames Tideway Tunnel, we are confident that having the knowledge and expertise of three of the most prominent consultancies will be a huge asset in our work to clean up London's river."

Turner & Townsend is one of the three consultants on the project’s framework.
