Trams Triangle/London-Gatwick-Brighton mainline

This area of South London contains the key town centres of Croydon, Sutton and Wimbledon, with important links to central London and Gatwick via the Brighton mainline and, in the future, Crossrail 2. The Tram has transformed travel opportunities in the area and provides the potential for further growth in homes and jobs. The proposal to extend the Tram to Sutton Town Centre, and potentially beyond to the proposed Cancer Hub, would improve public transport accessibility to the town centre and St. Helier Hospital, and support the delivery of at least 10,000 homes. TfL and the GLA are working with the boroughs to produce a robust business case and funding package, demonstrating how housing and employment growth can be unlocked.

This corridor links beyond London’s boundaries into a Strategic Infrastructure Priority (see Figure 2.15 (9)).
