The West London Tram is dead, killed by the determined opposition of local residents and their councillors - but the cost lingers on...
Roger Evans: Can the Mayor confirm how much money was spent on the West London Tram?
Ken Livingstone: The expenditure to mid October 2007 was in the order of £34.8 million. This was necessary to meet the level of detail required for a Transport and Works Act application. The money funded work including engineering, transport modelling, consultations, legal advice, scheme drawings and the Environmental Impact Assessment. Recent expenditure has focussed on closing down the project.
Much of the work already carried out by Transport for London on the tram project will assist in the planning of any new public transport solution for local journeys in west London.
Is that the sound of 'bendies' approaching?
