Boris Johnson: Crystal Palace tram extension 'absolutely guaranteed' by 2020

Croydon Guardian: Boris Johnson has said the Tramlink extension will go ahead by 2020 Boris Johnson has said the Tramlink extension will go ahead by 2020

Boris Johnson last night said he could "absolutely guarantee" that Tramlink would be extended to Crystal Palace by 2020.

Speaking at a Conservative Party fundraiser, the Mayor of London said the much sought-after extension has been approved by Transport for London commissioner Peter Hendy.

But he added a precise timeframe for the extension was yet to be established.

Mr Johnson said: "It is a very slow-moving process but it is going to happen. 

"It may not be by 2015 but it is going to be by the end of the decade. I can absolutely guarantee that."

Mr Johnson and TfL has come under repeated fire in the past for failing to allocate funds for the extension despite publicly backing it.
