TfL take control of Tramlink

Transport for London has taken over ownership of Tramlink in south London as part of a £98 million deal.

The move will see Tramlink – a 28km light rail system running on three lines - owned and managed by TfL London Rail.

TfL commissioner Peter Hendy said that general maintenance levels on the scheme will increase and that tram stops would be improved.

Under the terms of the deal, TfL will continue to honour all Tramtrack Croydon's existing contracts and the status of all proposed extensions to the tram network remains the same.

In the longer term, TfL will develop an investment programme which, subject to future funding commitments, could allow for upgrading or renewal of the network.
