Westfield pulls plug on £15m payment for tram network

A £28m investment in a new tram loop in Croydon town centre looks to be dropped
Westfield and Hammerson have pulled a promised £15million investment in Croydon town centre.
The money was to have gone towards the cost of the “Dingwall Loop”, some extra track near East Croydon on which trams could be diverted to make it easier for cars to enter the car parks of the long-promised supermall.
With Transport for London budgets being squeezed, it seems likely that without the cash from Hammersfield, the £28million Dingwall Loop will now be scrapped altogether.
