Default Trams (or BRT) from Sutton to Colliers Wood

I'm a little baffled by the kink at Reigate Avenue. It looks like they
are destroying a recreation ground for no reason.

That's simple. Sport, well being, fitness, and recreation are well down
most politicians' priorities as those promoting this know full well.

Maybe installing a dedicated stop for the Sutton Sports village?

The track looks as though it will run roughly along the extended course
of the existing tarmac footway between Reigate avenue and Rose Hill,
running just North of the bowling green and other buildings. The white
line on the map here. :-

Am guessing there's insufficient room or too much traffic disruption to bring it
straight through the Rose Hill roundabout.

As witnessed by schools being allowed to sell off their sports fields and
grounds to developers since the 90s then the hypocrites in westminster come
along and claim that kids don't get enough exercise and are too fat.

Interesting. The CW option does sees to be easier to build, and has a more
workable location for terminus platforms

and it also removes the nonsense of trying to include SW to Croydon and
Wimbledon to Sutton services as part of the solution

the alternative is going to be a very expensive high level bridge across the
Rose Hill roundabout, as ground level transit is likely to make the, already
very busy, roundabout impossible to navigate.
