More London Trams closure to come

There are to be more line closures on the London Trams network over the next couple of months – including a lengthy, almost a month, closure between 29th March and 24th April. These latest closure come not long after no trams ran through central Croydon for a couple of weeks earlier this month.

Significant rail replacement works – including on crossovers and points – are to take place on the eastern parts of the network which will mean that for a time only the Wimbledon line will see any form of service in operation.

The Transport for London planned track closures document lists the following forthcoming London Trams closures:

  • Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th March – Sandilands to New Addington
  • Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th March – Sandilands to New Addington
  • Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th March – Sandilands to New Addington
  • Friday 29th March to Wednesday 24th April – Elmers End to New Addington, Reeves Corner to Beckenham Junction

Ignoring the fact that the routes mentioned in the lengthy closure don’t make much sense, it looks that for around four weeks there will be no trams running from Reeves Corner eastbound which will mean that the Beckenham Junction, Elmers End and New Addington lines will all be closed throughout that period.

Reports suggest that there are two main locations where the works will be taking place in the 4 week long closure – East Croydon and Sandilands Junction.

Replacement bus services are expected to be offered to allow passengers to get where they need to.

  1. As a Driver with London Trams, we have been told the only service during the main works is East Croydon to Wimbledon and return. The TfL website states:

    LONDON TRAMS: From Good Friday 29 March until Wednesday 24 April, no service between East Croydon and Beckenham Junction / Elmers End / New Addington. Replacement buses operate.
