New Addington line improvement work
Suspension of service
To carry out this work, we will be suspending tram services from Sandilands to New Addington from 22:00 on Wednesday 4 December until Sunday 8 December, and from Addington Village to New Addington from Monday 9 December to Thursday 12 December. A replacement bus service will be in operation.
The closure allows the team to carry out 24-hour work, which reduces the overall length of time of the works involved, and is the least disruptive to the local community and those who use our services.
Services will return to normal on Friday 13 December.
We are firmly committed to minimising disruption and we are working closely with the London Borough of Croydon and local stakeholders to reduce the impact of this work as far as possible.
