Boris Johnson urged to back Cross River Tram

The London Assembly is calling on the Mayor of London to fully explore all options to secure funding for the Cross River Tram scheme.

Cross River Tram would run between Euston and Waterloo, with branches to Camden Town and King’s Cross in the north, and Brixton and Peckham in the south.

While research and design of the tram scheme is funded until 20101, the tram’s future is not yet assured as funding for actual implementation has not yet been identified.

Assembly member Val Shawcross who proposed the motion said: “If the Mayor is committed to reducing the environmental impact of road transport, he has to find ways of implementing more eco-friendly modes of public transport like the Cross River Tram, to encourage people out of their cars.”
