Sewage

Reported via mobile in the Flooding category anonymously at 08:11, Wednesday 1 June 2022

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS3565521.

Having woken today to see the sewage leak marked as “fixed” on the previous thread I expected a tunnel clear of the river of excrement. Having just cycled through it I can attest to TFL’s extraordinarily loose definition of “fixed”. There is no visible difference whatsoever. Even in the unlikely event that this leak has truly been halted, no one in their right mind would call the issue fixed when there is still a hundred meter slick of thick wet sewage covering the road and pavement. If I woke one morning to find a stranger squatting over my kitchen table mid-dump, just because they pinched it off and pulled their trousers up would not signal the problem “fixed” given there was still a fresh turd on my table. Extraordinary from TFL. When are you going to actually clean it up?

  • This certainly isn't a mid dump crimp situation. I can confirm sewage still floweth. Absolutely disgusting. Both the way TFL are fudging their figures by pretending it's fixed so we have to raise a new issue and the fact I've been cycling through sewage for a month now.

  • Still no change to this situation. Two months of disgusting and dangerous raw sewage flowing through the tunnel. Cyclists and pedestrians are now using the opposite pavement creating the very real likelihood of collisions with people coming in the opposite direction on the numerous blind corners in the tunnel. No Update from TFL other than to falsely label this issue “fixed” when it quite Obviously isn’t. What is going on here????

  • It's an absolute joke. I tried cycling on the other side today for the first time and nearly got a face full of oncoming cyclist twice. So the options are cycle through liquid excrement, cycle on the road and get abused / dangerously overtaken by angry motorists or cycle on the opposite pavement and hope you don't get killed by an unsuspecting commuter hustling into central London. TFL must be looking forward to the legal action that will ensure once an accident happens.

  • I wonder if a river of sewage was outside the Mayor's office, would it take this long to repair and clean? I think not. Every journey matters (well those journeys they can make money out of

  • Almost two months now and nothing whatsoever has been done. Still there, still revolting, and still dangerous. There is absolutely no sign that anything is being investigated and no works are “in progress”. The stream of shite is still flowing merrily down the tunnel from the north end. What exactly is being done? What cause has been identified? And when is it going to be sorted? Absolute clown show.

  • Https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-61896411 - polio virus found in London sewage. Need I say more?

  • Thank you TFL for finally stopping the flow of human excrement through Rotherhithe tunnel.

    My final request is to send a street cleaning truck down there to wash away the dried sewage. Help the pedestrians out.
