Residents around Bermondsey Wall East might have noticed an unusual sight on the Thames last week – a giant tunnel boring machine called Selina.

The machine arrived to create the final 5.5km stretch of the Super Sewer project in Chambers Wharf.

She is named after Dr Selina Fox, who founded the Bermondsey Medical Mission in 1904.

Maurice Gallagher, Deputy Delivery Manager for the eastern section of the project, said: “To welcome Selina to site is a great moment for Tideway – and for London.”

Her journey will take her to Abbey Mills pumping station later this year.
