What improvements?

The ones currently under way.


So do they include new network extensions, new stations or new stock, as
Manchester Metrolink has repeatedly enjoyed?

Not sure there's anywhere left to extend it to that doesn't involve new track
or tunneling and that won't happen because its not london. Even as a londoner
I think the disparity between the investment the capital gets in transport
infrastructure and what other cities get is a disgrace.


Manchester, Nottingham and Birmingham trams have all had new track,
stations, routes and fleets in the recent past.


You rather missed the point. In europe cities the size of brum and manchester
generally have a tram system AND a proper metro but until the 90s they didn't
even have the trams and nottingham only gots its tram 10 or so years ago! This
is a shameful indictment of UK public transport policy by all governments.
