Croydon trams leading riot regeneration

Mayor of London Boris Johnson has said that improvements to Tramlink services will play a part in the recovery of riot-hit Croydon.

Johnson confirmed that contracts have now been signed for the supply of six new trams for London Tramlink that will boost services on the network in Croydon from early next year.

The London Borough of Croydon has confirmed a £3M contribution in funding to the purchase of the new trams which will also include the refurbishment of tramstop surrounds.

Croydon Council leader Mike Fisher said: “Perception is important – and the perception today is that things are really beginning to move again in Croydon; and by spending heavily on extra trams we’re backing what we’re saying with hard cash.”
