Morgan Est wins £38m Thames Water tunnels project

Infrastructure services provider Morgan Est, part of construction group Morgan Sindall, has been awarded a £38 million contract by Thames Water to design, construct and commission a 4.9km tunnel in south London.

The tunnel will extend the Thames Water Ring Main (TWRM) from an existing shaft in Brixton to a new pump out shaft at Honor Oak Reservoir. The tunnelled extension and provision of a new pump out facility at Honor Oak includes associated mechanical, electrical, instrumental, control and automation (MEICA) works. The facility will provide Thames Water with greater reliability in the supply of water to its customers and allow for the transfer of water from the Ring Main to Honor Oak Reservoir.

Work on site is due to start in March 2007 and will be completed in March 2010.
