Tramlink Update

There are are proposals to extend the Tramlink from Wimbledon to Sutton. Currently, a TfL exhibition is touring the borough with details and plans.

While there is much merit in these plans, I shall be questioning:

·         The capacity of Wimbledon station for all trams to start and end at this one location

·         The effect of a 'South Wimbledon Loop' on traffic, alongside building on playing fields and the cost of up to £30m

·         Whether a less costly loop to St Hellier Hospital can be achieved (currently proposed at £60m)

 

Please email me your thoughts and concerns, you can either reply to this email, or contact me on hammondsp@parliament.uk. More details on the whole project can be found here: http://www.suttonmertontramlink.co.uk/
