No trams will run to and from New Addington for nearly 10 days over the August Bank Holiday

No trams will run to and from New Addington for nearly 10 days, starting on the August Bank Holiday weekend.Transport for London (TfL) says routine track improvement works will take place in the Gravel Hill area from 10.30pm on August 25 until the start of service on September 4.

There will be no trams running between New Addington and Lloyd Park during the closure.

Rory O’Neill, TfL’s director of trams, apologised for the disruption.

He said: “We are sorry for the disruption this essential work may cause our customers and I’d like to thank them for their patience while it is carried out.

“Our engineers will be working hard to complete the work as quickly as possible.”

Replacement buses for New Addington passengers will run between New Addington and Dingwall Road, next to East Croydon station.

 

The replacement buses will also stop at King Henry’s Drive, Fieldway, Addington Village, Gravel Hill, Coombe Lane and Lloyd Park tram stops.

Trams running from Wimbledon will terminate at Lloyd Park, but TfL has advised passengers travelling to the Addington area to change at East Croydon for the replacement bus.

Passengers will also be able to use the 64, 433 and 466 bus routes between the Addington area and central Croydon, with valid tram tickets accepted on the replacement bus service and local buses.
