Commonly known as the ‘super sewer’, the TTT is intended to stop millions of tonnes of sewage flowing into the River Thames from London’s Victorian sewers, ensuring that the UK complies with environmental standards.

The project won the Infrastructure Journal's award for Water Deal of the Year 2016.
