Tideway Pours Roof for Albert Embankment Shaft

Tideway Project Albert Embankment Shaft

Considering this concrete roof at the central London site as the second shaft closure on the central section of the super sewer, a roof has been added to the Thames Tideway tunnel’s 49m deep shaft at Albert Embankment in Vauxhall.

While the first closure happened at the Victoria Embankment shaft at the end of last year, in order to create the roof, a total of 74m3 of concrete was poured onto 30 precast concrete planks. These planks sat atop three giant roof beams that were installed at the beginning of March.

By pre-installing the edge protection on the beams, the steel angles fixed to the planks which allowed the team to fit the shaft’s temporary void covers quickly and optimize safety.

Completion of the shaft at Albert Embankment Foreshore will be done, once two hatches and two small grab posts have been installed.

Albert Embankment is one of several sites on the Tideway project that will leave an all-new piece of carefully landscaped public space once the project is finished in 2025.

Completing over halfway through the secondary lining of the 25km long tunnel at the moment, Tideway secured £300M of green financing to finish the super sewer project, its seventh annual report and accounts revealed.
