Dr Toby Roberts at the British Tunnelling Society

The British Tunnelling Society, an Associated Society of the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE), formed 50 years ago provides a crucial form for development of the tunnelling industry in the UK and overseas, and recently invited WJ’s Chairman, Dr Toby Roberts to speak at an evening event regarding “Dewatering Strategies for Underground Infrastructure in the London Basin”.

WJ have a long and celebrated history providing dewatering on tunnelling projects globally, having provided our expertise for projects such as Crossrail and the Toronto Eglinton Crosstown project, and specifically for large, high profile projects within the London Basin. Toby was able to draw on his expertise and WJ’s experiences of working on projects such as Crossrail, Thames Tideway, BBC TV Centre, the Docklands Light Railway and Jubilee Line extensions, Heathrow Airport Terminal 5 and the London Cable Tunnels, to discuss the challenges of undertaking dewatering in London’s characteristic geology and the practicalities of working in subterranean tunnels, shafts and sites located in a dense urban environment.
