Tram services suspended in Croydon town centre for repairs

Transport for London announced yesterday that the tram service will be suspended between Reeves Corner and East Croydon overnight tonight and through Sunday morning, while cable repair work is carried out on Church Street.

Tram services will be suspended in the town centre tomorrow morning

TfL said, “We will need to carry out essential cable repair works near Church Street tram stop in Croydon town centre.

“Repairing the cable will reduce the chances of further major disruptive engineering works and associated closures of the tramway in the future.

“We need to carry out this work while trams are not running. This is why it must take place overnight and into Sunday morning.”

Services will not run in the town centre until noon on July 21. “During this time, services will operate on the rest of the network as normal between Wimbledon and Reeves Corner, and between East Croydon and New Addington, Beckenham and Elmers End.

“We will maintain safe walking routes at all times during the works.”
