By Rupert Cole on Monday, July 3, 2023
Tideway, the company on a mission to upgrade London’s sewage system, have launched an underground oasis in the form of a subterranean garden installation. ‘Loo Gardens’ is located 50 metres underground, in the heart of the Tideway Thames Tunnel, London’s new super sewer.
Andy Mitchell, CEO of Tideway, said: “We’re thrilled to unveil Loo Gardens – an underground oasis that symbolises the incredible environmental legacy that the Thames Tideway Tunnel will offer London and its communities for years to come. This subterranean haven provides a multisensory experience, featuring the nature that will thrive once the super sewer is fully up and running. The garden points to a cleaner, greener future, and an example of the long-lasting legacy the tunnel will leave, far outlasting its construction.”
Tideway are also offering the public the opportunity to visit the sewer and explore the garden through a competition with Time Out.
