London’s Super Sewer can no longer wait, London First tells the FT

With London’s Victorian sewage system struggling to cope, the 25km Thames Tideway tunnel is intended to boost capacity, but the £4.1bn project has run into opposition.

David Leam, London First’s Director of Infrastructure, has told James Pickford, the Financial Times’ London and south-east correspondent that we can no longer afford to “kick the can down the road, expecting the next generation to clean it up”, and  that, instead, we must plan for the future and make the investment now.
