Answer for Tram Extensions (1)

Answered By: 
The Mayor

TfL is engaged in work with all three of the boroughs you name, including regular meetings between TfL and borough officers, as well as regular meetings at a political level between Borough Leaders/portfolio holders and my Deputy Mayor for Transport. TfL is further developing its technical work to now explore the funding opportunities for the Crystal Palace and Sutton Tramlink extensions. This includes consideration of the level of development that could be served by these extensions and the developer contributions that could be potentially generated from this growth. Other funding opportunities are being considered, to ensure a full range of options are taken into account.
