Sheet Piling Works Completed on Thames Tideway Central

Sheet Piling Contractors, Sheet Piling (UK) Ltd have recently completed sheet pile installation of a 38.0m diameter circular cofferdam.

The works were carried out directly for Ferrovial Agroman, Laing O’Rourke (FLO) Joint Venture on the central section of the Thames Tideway project.

The works formed a starter cofferdam for the main tunnelling shaft at Kirtling Street where both the east and west tunnelling machines will be launched.



In total 198no Arcelor Mittal 14.0m long GU23N sheet piles were installed using a Giken Pile Press due to environmental restrictions on noise and vibration.

Once completed, the Kirtling Street shaft will extend to a depth of approximately 90m.

The sheet piling works were completed in July 2016, on programme and to the satisfaction of both the Client and FLO.
