Southwark Supertram website launched

The promoters of a tram route to link London Bridge with Camberwell have launched a website offering more details of the ambitious project.

In July we reported on plans by the Tram Power company to construct a light rail link through the streets of Southwark from London Bridge to Denmark Hill via Borough High Street, Elephant & Castle and Walworth Road.

Tram Power claims that the scheme, with estimated capital costs of 60 million, can be privately funded and could only take a year to build once permission is granted.

A website at now provides further information on proposed tram stops and possible future extensions to the route.

The company has proposed a number of tram schemes in the UK and Ireland but none has yet come to fruition. In Lancashire, Tram Power founder Professor Lewis Lesley recently claimed that the Preston tram network's power needs could be provided by a two megawatt wind turbine on the edge of the city.
