  • It has been like this for about 10 days, cyclists and motorcyclists are having to ride through human waste. It is disgusting

  • This IS a safety issue, I have to cycle for a week through the stench of urine and faeces in central London 2022, There is a small river of urine going down the pavement and oozing through the walls and street on the north side why does it take you over 10 days to sort this out?

  • Sewage is still leaking and progressively getting worse. As of today the issue still is unresolved.

  • This is still ongoing and still revolting. It is bad enough driving though it, I can't imagine how unpleasant for pedestrians and cyclists it must be (and it's not exactly the friendliest tunnel for them on the best of days!)

  • I have spoken with Thames water and they have sent an engineer to the site. Their comments were “as this sewer is a private sewer and not adopted by thames water, it is the responsibility of Tfl” Please address this matter.
