Campaigners have called for new Mayor of London Sadiq Khan to consider investing in trams for the capital.
TramForward, the campaigning arm of the Light Rail Transit Association (LRTA), claimed that with pollution a serious problem, the time is right to consider trams.
“There is an urgent need for the new Mayor to invest in surface public transport, by restricting traffic and developing a tramway network along the most heavily-used bus corridors in central London,” said LRTA Chairman Andrew Braddock.
He added that the city’s continuing population growth meant it was essential that the busiest bus routes were upgraded to create more capacity at an economic cost.
