Description: The Thames Tideway Tunnel project will protect the River Thames in London from sewage discharges arising from an old and at-capacity sewerage network. Bazalgette Tunnel Limited (also known as Tideway) is the Infrastructure Provider appointed to deliver and finance the project, along with enabling and interface works that are being led by Thames Water Utilities Limited. The project has now entered the construction phase. Defra is the lead department that monitors the potential risks to the taxpayer that may arise from the project, including potential calls on the contingent financial support package provided by Government for the project to cover certain remote but high impact risks.
DCA (RAG): Amber/Green
