This project involved the installation of two new valves and two Syrinix trunk main monitoring devices on to an existing 30’’ cast iron water main in Victoria Embankment, central London. The works were required to prevent customers losing their clean water supply during the construction of a new shaft, as part of the Thames Tideway Tunnel project. The works also included the design and assembly of a 200m long, 400mm diameter rider main installed above ground. This was to be used as a contingency plan, in case there was any disruption to the 30” main during the shaft sinking works.
