Croydon Tramlink extension to Crystal Palace
In 2006 Transport for London (TfL) held a public consultation on the route options for extending Tramlink to Crystal Palace. Three different route options were proposed between the Harrington Road tram stop and Crystal Palace Parade.
The extension to Crystal Palace would provide a service of up to six trams an hour to Croydon, also serving the the East London Line Extension and other National Rail services at Crystal Palace rail station, as well as numerous bus services from Crystal Palace Parade. A new tram service would also reduce the journey time between Croydon and Crystal Palace to about 18 minutes.
Unfortunately the Crystal Palace and Anerley Tramlink extension will no longer be taken forward as there is no Government funding to implement the plans. TfL will now be carrying out a wider study, working closely with local councils and other key stakeholders, to assess how the transport improvements South London needs can be delivered.
TfL are committed to including new proposals for extensions to the tram as part of a future bid to Government.
