Although Station Master doesn’t currently include information for tram stations, it’s something we think we’re quite likely to put in a future update. This means we’ve always got our ear to the ground about any future Croydon Tramlink developments, and we heard some earlier this week.
We were at the London Transport Museum on Monday night to hear Nick Baker (Head of Operations at Tramlink) to give a talk on the future. There’s always speculation about possible extensions, proposals and he put some of the rumours to bed.
Something we didn’t know (but was speculated here on London Reconnections a while ago) was the confirmation that Wimbledon station is to be re-designed so that there are two platforms for Tram services, meaning that the service will increase there to 12 trams per hour.
Nick ended his talk with the confirmation that extensions such as Crystal Palace, and Morden to Sutton may go ahead, but others that have been rumoured in the past such as Streatham and Brixton will – in all probability – never happen.
Station Master is still busy working away on getting its 3D maps drawn up for every tube station (We’ve done 90% of the tube network now), so once we’ve done that, it may be time to collect the data for every tram stop!
