In Pictures: Croydon Town Centre Easter blockade starts

On Saturday 28th March a 16 day blockade of the Croydon loop started with no trams running between Reeves Corner and East Croydon (with the closure extended through to Sandilands over the Easter weekend). Although the main purpose of the closure is for Croydon Council environmental improvement works to take place Tramlink are also taking the opportunity for some track relaying (with works on Tamworth Road having started) and infrastructure works at West Croydon and East Croydon stops.
