The development of the Thames River waterfront in London, focusing on the area around Blackfriars, and named King's Reach Development, has necessitated the building of a new river wall.

Some 200m long and 15m away from the existing masonry wall, this required approximately 3000m2 of land to be reclaimed from the river which quite naturally broadened the scope of the development. We explore Arup's involvement in this project in greater detail in this issue.
