The Thames Tunnel is an underwater tunnel, built beneath the River Thames in London, connecting Rotherhithe and measures 35 feet (11 m) wide by 20 feet (6 m) high and is 1, feet ( m) long, running at a depth of 75 feet (23 m) below the river surface measured at high tide.

Subaqueous Tunnel a tunnel built under a riverbed or some other water obstacle, such as a strait, as a passage for vehicular and railroad traffic and pipelines.

Subaqueous tunnels usually run perpendicular to the riverbed and, in part, the coastal zones. The cross section of such tunnels features two sloping surfaces. Its shape is determined by.

The Thames Tunnel is the world's first major sub-aqueous tunnel. To construct it, Marc Brunel used the cast iron tunnelling shield he invented — its successful deployment was also a world first.

To build the Thames Tideway Tunnel (and its two smaller connection tunnels), we’re using six giant TBMs.

These machines will excavate the ground using a rotating disc-shaped cutterhead, simultaneously creating the tunnel walls with pre-made concrete segments and removing the thousands of tonnes of spoil via a conveyor.

The Infrastructure Provider will be independent of Thames Water and have its own licence from Ofwat. It will be responsible for delivering the Thames Tideway Tunnel, which will tackle the discharge of untreated sewage into the tidal River Thames through central London and to significantly increase the capacity in the London sewerage network.

The art of tunnelling has been known to man from the earliest times and doubtless originated from the caves and other natural underground passages which were used for shelter by prehistoric man.

In Egypt long tunnels have been found which were cut through solid rock thousands of years ago, serving as passages to the tombs of ancient kings. In the early s a French engineer resident in England called Marc Isambard Brunel invented what he called his tunnelling shield, after failed attempts by others to dig a subaqueous tunnel under the Thames through London clay with ground and water difficulties.

It consisted of a series of boxes about m x m that divided up the tunnel face. The C Thames Tunnel project is a joint venture between Hochtief of Germany and Murphy Group. The work includes construction of a km twin-bore tunnel from a launch portal in Plumstead to a box at Woolwich, and then under the Thames to a site in North Woolwich.

The tunnel will comprise eight segments which form a m-diameter ring. Subaqueous tunnel building became possible through the use of tunneling shields (in combination with compressed air) and prefabricated lining.

A number of major subaqueous tunnels have been driven by the shield method, for example, two vehicular tunnels (each km long) under the Hudson River in the USA and the railroad tunnel (over 6 km long. Nearly years after Sir Joseph Bazalgette revolutionised the way water waste flowed through London, work has begun on the new bn super sewer which is urgently needed to halt the tonnes of sewage being spilt into the tidal section of the River Thames every year.
