As part of this work, there will be some temporary service changes on the following dates:

Sunday 2 June (until 09:00)

  • No trams between Sandilands and Elmers End/Beckenham Junction
  • Trams will be less frequent than usual between Wimbledon and East Croydon
  • Replacement bus services will not be available. Please use local bus routes

Trams to and from New Addington will not be affected on either of these dates.

Blackhorse Lane bridge replacement

We're replacing Blackhorse Lane bridge, a single span bridge that crosses two tram lines between Blackhorse Lane and Addiscombe tram stops. Croydon Council-owned Addiscombe Railway Park bridge is being replaced at the same time in a joint project to save public money and time. Read more about the Blackhorse Lane Bridge works.

Addiscombe to Blackhorse Lane track renewal

This work will improve the safety and ride quality of the tram track between Addiscombe Road and Blackhorse Lane. We'll replace over 1km of track, which will improve the foundations on which new ballast, sleepers and rails are then laid. We're also improving the alignment of the new track to provide a smoother ride.

Essential maintenance of the tram network helps reduce the length and frequency of major, more disruptive engineering work. For safety reasons this work can only take place while trams are not running.
