Transport for London (TfL) has statutory and contractual responsibilities for London Trams. TfL has existing channels of communication with the London Borough of Croydon. TfL attends and participates in public events and panels which enable information to be sought and provided and which reflect the importance of the Croydon Tram to its surrounding locality.
In addition, the TfL Board, whose members bring a wide range of experience to their role of holding TfL to account for delivery of the Business Plan and operational and budgetary performance, has received regular public updates on Croydon tram services with the opportunity for questions at Board meetings since the tragic derailment in 2016.
I am content that these existing arrangements provide for stakeholder views to be represented.
