The Thames Barrier is a unique flood control structure on the River Thames at Woolwich Reach in East London. It is 520 meters across and protects London against flooding caused by tidal surges from the North Sea. It took eight years to build the structure, costing £535m (£1300m at 2001 prices) and became fully operational in 1982.
