Connecting new toilet in extension to sewer

Hi checked related messages but can't seem to find an answer. I am having a small extension on the side of the house and incorporating a toilet. The main sewer pipe runs along the rear elevation of the house to a manhole (two covers ) halfway across before continuing the run to adjacent houses. there is a foul water drain from the kitchen at the rear that goes into the manhole. . The waste from the toilet would curve around the house corner. Would it be possible to connect toilet waste into the sewer by breaking into the kitchen foul waste pipe ? This would save a lot of digging as the Manhole is about 2m down from the surface.
Thanks for any help.

As above, but I would also be looking at where/how the existing gully connection enters the chamber. Need to make sure solid matter will be washed away with the flow and not foul the benching, risking blockages. Building Control will need to be notified and may want to inspect the work.
