Travel disruptions over Easter

Essential tram track renewal works over Easter will lead to the closure of Wellesley Road southbound for ten days

London Trams will be replacing the section of tram track between Lansdowne Road and the underpass from 00.01am on Saturday 8th April until 05.00am on Tuesday, 18th April 2017.

As a result, Wellesley Road will be closed southbound 24 hours a day for ten days and there will be no exit from Station Road onto Wellesley Road and temporary two way lights will be set up on Wellesley Road/Station Road.

To make optimum use of the road closure, Thames Water and Southen Gas Networks will carry out utility works on George Street and Station Road at the same time. 

Road closures and alternative routes

Southbound road traffic will be diverted via the A213 and A236 whilst southbound buses will run along Lansdowne Road and Dingwall Road. Sydenham Road will be made two-way to facilitate deliveries during the closure. 


There will be no tram service along the entire Croydon town centre tram loop during the period of works. Trams will not run between East Croydon and Reeves Corner. Trams from Beckenham Junction, New Addington and Elmers End will terminate at East Croydon. No trams will run from Elmers End after 7.30pm on weekdays, 6.30pm on Saturdays and all day Sundays.


A number of bus routes will be diverted southbound via Lansdowne Road and Dingwall Road. Numbers 50, 60, 75, 109, 154, 166, 250, 264, 403, 405, 407, 412, 455, 468 and N109.

Passengers are advised to expect some delays to affected services while the diversion is in place.
