Tram works are set to take place between East Croydon tram stop and along George Street from today (Saturday).

As part of TfL’s programme to renew London Trams infrastructure, the planned work to replace a section of track and points will be between Wellesley Road and Dingwall Road.

The works will be taking place from today (Saturday) until Saturday, February 24.

Services will start again on Sunday, February 25.

This will mean no trams will run between Reeves Corner and Sandilands tram stops, as engineering teams will be working during the closure to minimise disruption.

During the works, no trams will run between Reeves Corner and Sandilands, which includes Croydon town centre loop.

Rail replacement bus TL1* and local bus services will serve all nearby tram stops along these routes enabling customers to continue their journeys.

Services will continue on the rest of the London Trams network as normal.

The majority of the roads in the area continue to be open to traffic as normal but part of Church Street will be closed to traffic and some adjacent roads to the works may be impacted.

Addiscombe Road will be closed in parts during the first week of the closure but will reopen to traffic on morning of February 19.

While the Croydon town centre loop is closed to trams for these works, additional essential maintenance work has been scheduled on Church Street between Middle Street and Old Palace Road.

Road resurfacing works will also take place on Addiscombe Road, from Cherry Orchard Road to Colson Road and Park Hill Rise to Chepstow Road, and on Tamworth Road, from Ruskin Road to North End.

Navid Golshan, TfL’s General Manager for London Trams, said: “This planned maintenance is vital to ensure we can continue to offer customers a reliable service across the London Trams network.

“As part of this closure we have also taken the opportunity to undertake some additional essential works on Church Street, Addiscombe Road and Tamworth Road, with an aim to minimise the need for future closures.

“I would like to thank customers for their patience while this takes place and would ask anyone travelling to plan ahead, allowing plenty of time for any journey.”
