The Cross River Tram is a Transport for London proposal for a tram system in London, England, to connect Camden Town to King's Cross, Peckham and Brixton.
It is planned to relieve overcrowding on the London Underground, and to improve transport in areas currently without good public transport, such as North Peckham & the Aylesbury Estate in Southwark, which would aid in the regeneration of these areas.
The scheme enjoys high levels of support, particularly in South London, where the tram is seen as vital in improving access to new jobs and training opportunities and attracting inward investment.
However, the scheme has been consistently delayed with a current completion date of 2016-2020, as opposed to an original target date of 2008.
PLEASE FORWARD THE LINK TO THIS PETITION TO ANYONE WHO MAY SUPPORT IT!!!!
We the undersigned support the development and implementation of the Cross River Tram as soon as possible. We believe that Cross River Tram is essential for:
Linking regeneration areas with the employment opportunities in the Central London.
The relief of congestion on the Northern, Victoria & Picadilly Lines.
Easing the significant overcrowding on buses which are currently the only means of public transport on certain sections of the route.
We call on the Mayor of London Boris Johnson to confirm his commitment to the Cross River Tram and to do everything in his power to ensure that it is delivered as soon as possible.
