Cross River Tram in Brixton

The Cross River Tram is a proposed tram service that - with luck - will whisk connect Brixton residents to Camden Town and King's Cross via Euston and Waterloo, with a south London branch to Peckham.

As part of their public consultation process, Transport for London (TfL), in partnership with Lambeth Council and the Cross River Partnership held an event in Brixton, featuring a full size model of a tram carriage.

We went along for a look. We'd love to see Brixton back on the tram network.

The scene in Tate Gardens. It wasn't exactly packed, but then holding the event on Cup Final day perhaps wasn't the greatest idea.

I'm not quite sure of the connection between these curiously dressed people and the tram, but I guess the kids liked the free balloons.

UPDATE NOV 2008: BORIS SCRAPS TRAM PROJECT
From the external link BBC: "Several major transport schemes have been scrapped and jobs could be lost as Transport for London (TfL) tries to save 2.4bn over the next 10 years.

The Thames Gateway Bridge, the Docklands Light Railway extension to Dagenham Docks and the cross-river tram are being shelved in the savings plan. "
