I am glad this is bringing up a discussion. I have seen the plan and the many articles in the press.I am not convinced. My feeling is that this will have a real negative impact on our area as a whole for years to come whether we like it or not (not least with the issue of traffic blocking Jamaica Rd and the Rotherhithe tunnel for years, a connection point for much of London).
yes like you I am not keen on having all our sewage in the Thames either. But whilst this is not an "open cesspit" or a "sewage fountain", the concerns and issues with a super sewer next door to us are real. Thank you for the info about the shaft by the way.
The real question is really would anyone want a super sewer next to their home? Do you want all the disturbance in your area? Do you agree that a super sewer is built in the Alfred Salter Playground or in the King Stair's Garden?
Other boroughs seems so much more active and vocal in this instance. When I look in the press it is all about Hammersmith and Fulham.
yes good idea to petition for alternative site. In the meantime please check out and sign this petition:
Sorry I did not meant the physical work to be imminent. But this project looks like it is moving forward imminently and that there is a short time for opposition. But if anyone has more information about time for opposition and what can be done please post back.
