The £ 9 million project will install a pipeline between Crooms Hill, Greenwich and Ordnance Crescent, adjacent to the O2 Stadium on the Greenwich Peninsula.

The work program is a key element in phase two of the construction of new water infrastructure between the Deptford Water Treatment Works (WTW) and the Greenwich Peninsular, to be completed in March 2024.

This will help Thames Water meet the water needs for ongoing and future development.

Barhale was also responsible for the completion of Phase One – Deptford to Greenwich Main – which ran from Broadway Fields near Stephen Lawrence Center along Greenwich High Road to Crooms Hill.

The new main pipeline will connect to an existing DN800 water pipeline at Crooms Hill before crossing Greenwich Park.

It will be the largest construction project completed in the park since the London 2012 Olympics.

Barhale’s contract manager James McKenzie said: “This part of south – east London is experiencing a lot of development activity at the moment and it will probably only continue as access across the river improves thanks to the new Riverlinx project.

The new main line between Crooms Hill and Peninsular will be another important step towards meeting increased demand and building greater resilience in the network.
