Mayor of London Ken Livingstone and Ealing Borough Council’s Cabinet Member for Planning and Transport, Cllr Stephen Sears have today signed an agreement to mark their commitment to delivering the West London Tram scheme.

The Memorandum of Understanding commits Ealing Council and Transport for London to work together to provide a new public transport system of the highest quality for west London.

Ken Livingstone said: “I welcome the commitment to the West London Tram scheme from one of the key boroughs along the route. The proposed tram would provide a safe, rapid way to travel through west London, boosting regeneration in the area, and our polling has shown it is enormously popular with local people. I look forward to working with Ealing on this important project for west London.”

Cllr Stephen Sears said: “I am confident that this scheme is going to greatly improve more than just transport in west London. The tram project will not only provide benefits for the environment but also create economic gains for businesses along the Uxbridge corridor and enhance social cohesion in the community.”

The proposed West London Tram scheme would relieve one of the busiest and most congested routes into London by providing a new efficient public transport option. TfL estimates the tram system will carry 50 million passengers a year bring significant environmental benefits, encourage regeneration in the area and provide Londoners with better access to jobs. It is anticipated the scheme will be complete by 2011.
