Barhale, on behalf of Thames Water/Optimise, re- laid trunk sewers
at Wembley as a result of a number of new developments within the
catchment surrounding Wembley Stadium. The works were to resolve
flooding, which had been occurring and prevent future flood events
as a result of 1 in 30 year storms. The scheme, which commenced in
May and was completed in December 2015.

Wembley Stadium and its surrounding environment is a very busy
pedestrian traffic route. This level of pedestrian traffic proved to be a big
challenge facing the project especially as there were numerous events
that took place at the Stadium and the neighbouring Wembley Arena.
To protect members of the public and minimise disruption to them,
strategic planning of the work area was required.
