Time for the tram

Lib Dem GLA member Caroline Pidgeon is pressing Mayor Boris not to abandon plans for a cross-river tram.

Mayor Ken was initially keen on the plans – which would have a north-south tram route linking Peckham to Camden Town – but recently it seems to have been down-played. Camden wasn’t as keen on the scheme as councils south of the river, as they were worrying about the traffic impacts on Camden Town.

I think the tram could work, but I’d like to see TfL consider linking it to Islington if Camden’s not keen. There used to be a tram route down the Holloway Road: and a tramlink from Kings Cross to the Emirates, for example, could make sense a century on.
