Tram Services Update: Advance Notice of Strike Action and Engineering Work

Transport for London (TfL) have informed us that strike action is currently planned from:

Sunday 30 June until Monday 8 July and
Thursday 11 July until Monday 15 July, impacting London Trams services.

Additionally, planned engineering work on Saturday 6 July and Sunday 7 July will mean no London Trams services will operate east of East Croydon on those days.

If the strike action goes ahead, there will be a reduced and disrupted service expected on the whole of the London Trams network for some of these days and customers will be encouraged to check before they travel.

Customers are also advised to complete journeys by 18:00 on affected days and consider walking and cycling for local journeys where possible.

London Buses and London Overground in the area are scheduled to operate as normal but could be busier than normal. All customers will be advised to visit or the TfL Go app for the latest information.

TfL staff and Travel Ambassadors will be deployed on the busiest parts of the London Trams network to assist customers with their onward journeys. These locations include Addington Village, Beckenham Junction, East Croydon, Elmers End, West Croydon and Wimbledon.

On Saturday 6 July and Sunday 7 July, there is a planned closure of the London Trams network for essential maintenance. No trams will run from East Croydon to New Addington, Elmers End and Beckenham Junction but rail replacement bus services and enhanced local bus services will be available. This essential maintenance work includes packing ballast under a new section of track near Sandilands tram stop, which will mean smoother journeys for customers and help extend the life of the track.

Customers are advised to plan ahead, to consider alternative routes, to check before they travel, and to allow more time to complete their journey
