TfL and GLA officers have been working hard with boroughs to develop plans for possible tram extensions. This work continues, including looking to build a funding package that would make a scheme viable.

I have confirmed in the TfL business plan that TfL could contribute to an extension of the tram network, subject to a viable business case and sufficient third-party funding, including from the relevant boroughs.
