The interceptor tunnel was given the go ahead in March with a likely completion around 2019/2020. It is a large and complex civil engineering project and detailed design and planning still needs to be undertaken, so a more exact breakdown is not yet available. I am keen to see every effort made to complete the project as soon as is practicably possible and a timetable for this is currently under discussion.
