TfL receive plans for new Tramlink route through Morden
The prospectus considers how the tram extension would support economic development and regeneration objectives across the borough and attempts to evaluate the potential benefits, including job creation and journey time savings.
The proposed route would see five stops in Merton. Plans show the route would divert at the Morden Road stop, travel south running alongside Morden Hall Park, then follow St Helier Avenue travelling towards the Rosehill Roundabout.
Attending the launch of the report, Lib Dem transport minister Norman Baker emphasised that he fully supported light rail:
it is one of the cleanest and greenest forms of transport. With the right scheme in the right place, it has the potential to encourage people out of their cars and on to public transport.
The Wimbledon Guardian reported it here.
