Engineers inspect Croydon tram damage

Engineers yesterday began a detailed inspection of fire damage to a Croydon tram line, following the demolition of the furniture store that was burned out in riots on Monday.

TfL director of trams Phil Hewitt said: “Following the demolition of a damaged building, London Tramlink has restored services to the Reeves Corner tramstop on the network.

“The Tram remains suspended on the central Croydon loop but Tramlink engineers are now able to safely assess the extent of the damage to the track and cabling so as we can quickly start the work to restore passenger services through the centre as soon as possible.”

TfL said it will “review the situation” once the inspection is complete.
