DESCRIPTION
The elder London tram network opened in 1870 (initial horse tram); electrification was completed in 1903. Tram service was closed in 1952.
A modern LRT line (Croydon Tramlink) opened in 2000 serving Croydon, a suburb 20 km south of London city centre. Tramlink route is a mixture of street track shared with other traffic, dedicated track in public roads and off-street track (including former railway segments).
Tramlink has been a succesfull experience, with an high annual ridership (about 20 millions of passengers) and important appreciation by the users; furthermore, this new LRT line has been a decisive factor in the development of Croydon territory, generating a remarkable increase of the immoveable properties values. Tramlink is articulated in 3 routes: Wimbledon-Croydon-New Addington, Croydon-Beckenham Junction, Croydon-Elmers End.
