A Tram Extension Between Wimbledon And Sutton Could Come In 2025

The title of this post is the same as that of this article in Your Local Guardian.

The article talks about the project starting in 2022 and being ready in 2025, if there is public support.

This map shows the proposed route of the Tramlink’s Sutton to Wimbledon Extension.

I estimate that the route would be around five miles.

With current battery technology, that is probably too far for total running on battery power, but with the Midland Metro fully embracing the technology, this may open up methods for faster and more affordable construction.

I feel this could be an extension to watch, as after the innovative approach taken on the South Wales Metro, there are a lot of ideas being implemented around the world, that could make an extension to Sutton and on to the Royal Marsden, an affordable reality.
