20 stops on London's tram network will be closed for 10 days later this month.

The closure — guaranteed to make swathes of north Londoners remark 'I didn't even know London had trams' — covers the stretches between East Croydon and Beckenham Junction, Elmers End and New Addington.

It runs from Friday 23 August-Sunday 1 September inclusive (which covers the bank holiday weekend), and is due to maintenance work on the tram network and surrounding roads.

The rest of the tram network, running between East Croydon and Wimbledon, operates at a reduced service in both directions throughout the 10-day period.

Road closures will also be in place in the area — don't forget that the trams share road space with other vehicles — but TfL plans to increase the number of local buses running, offering tram passengers an alternative. Some special tram replacement buses will also be in operation.
