London foul sewer cleaned for Thames Water

Our specialist confined space entry crews were tasked with cleaning a 1800mm diameter foul trunk sewer in Yabsley Street, East London.

The works required a lane closure and traffic management on the busy road, in order to accommodate the MTS tankers and support vehicles. The confined space crew made their through a side entrance to the sewer, which was itself blocked with waste and debris.

Over the two week duration of the works, the MTS team removed more than 176 tonnes of foul waste from both the main sewer and the side entrance. All waste was removed from site for safe disposal.
