The proposal by Thames Water to possibly use the Shad Thames Pumping Station for the 'super sewer' has the interesting requirement to completely close all of Maguire Street and a stretch of Gainsford Street for a year or more!!
I agree with you, Brendan. Opening up Shad Thames to allow traffic to go west and turn down Curlew Street would seem to be a possibility. And I am sure they should be able to control noise to reasonable times and levels.
We're looking to buy a bigger property in the Shad Thames area (new baby!) but I'm concerned about the Thames Pumping Station works. I haven't been following it from the start so I'm trying to catch up but if anyone who is familiar with the latest news can give me a general idea, I'd really appreciate it.
Basically what I want to avoid is moving into a new home and finding ourselves in the middle of a stinky building site for 18 months! and/or realising that our property has lost value overnight etc...
Any advice, as always, greatly appreciated.
