Millenium Bridge

Project Brief

Dunelm were commissioned by City of London Corporation to undertake a £50k investigation directly beneath the Millennium Footbridge on the banks of the River Thames in London.

The objectives were to installed Vibrating Wire Piezometers with dedicated data loggers to record groundwater levels to allow detection of transient pore water pressures to assess the tidal influence of the River Thames on the groundwater level at the site.

Key Facts

  • Installation of Vibrating Wire Piezometers
  • UXO survey undertaken during the works
  • Works undertaken at night to avoid disrupting the adjacent school and restaurants
  • Difficult access along the often busy River Thames embankment
  • Works undertaken directly below the Millennium Footbridge

Site Issues and Requirements

The investigation took place on an active section of the embankment at the foot of St Paul’s Cathedral, directly below the Millennium Bridge in London.

Dunelm worked directly with City of London Corporation to complete the works with minimal disruption to the adjacent properties including a school and numerous restaurants.

Dunelm were required to work within tight time scales in order to get the project completed on schedule, without causing disruption to the general public and the surrounding site users.
