Boris Johnson and the head of TfL confirmed they are continuing to seek a Sutton Tram Link in south London when they were quizzed by London Assembly member Steve O’Connell this morning.
The Mayor of London and Mike Brown, TfL’s commissioner, said negotiations were ongoing but that the extension is reliant on an investment commitment from Sutton Council.
Conservative London Assembly member for Sutton and Croydon, Steve O’Connell, said:
“Whilst I am pleased to hear the Mayor and Mike Brown of TfL renew their commitment to delivering a tram extension in Sutton, it remains a great frustration that things are not moving forward more quickly. The Sutton Tram Extension would provide a backbone for housing regeneration in the area, as well as attracting a great many more businesses to south London. I will be working hard at City Hall to bring the council, TfL and the Mayor of London together to ensure that this important project is delivered for Sutton residents.”
