Land & Water: Innovative Work on the Thames

As part of enabling works for the Thames Tideway Tunnel, Land & Water and VolkerStevin recently dredged a pocket for the new Blackfriars Pier.

“However, the project was challenging – short slack water times, unpredictable tides and shallow water in areas made the endeavor too dangerous for divers,” Land & Water said in the press release.

“In addition, the team had merely weeks to complete the work near Blackfriars Bridge.” 

The Land & Water and VolkerStevin teams collaborated to create a frame for the geotextiles – fabric which lines the bottom of the pocket onto which the scour protection rock is laid – that could be lowered into the river.

The £900 000 project was finished on time and on budget by teams working five days a week, 24 hours a day.

Land & Water will be back on the Thames in December at Tattersall Castle to continue the dredging works.
