washing machine/dishwasher waste

Hi there,

Just in the process of plumbing in a new kitchen sink, washing machine and dishwasher. W/m is next to the sink, so the hose will go into the spigot of the sink P-trap, and a very short pipe run from the trap goes through the wall at roughly this height (trap level). Because of space restrictions the dishwasher is about 2 metres from the sink on the opposite side.

Would appreciate some advice on the best way to connect the dishwasher waste. I'm thinking, run 40mm pipe from a tee where the waste pipe goes through the wall (the other leg of the tee going to the sink trap), and attach another p-trap, with the top capped off, at the dishwasher end.

Is that the most straightforward way to do it?
