Tramlink route 4 is a tram route operated as part of the Tramlink network in south London for Transport for London (TfL). The route is the newest on the system, starting operations on 25 June 2012. This route should not be confused with the route 4 which appeared on the destination blinds of the CR4000s when new, which would have operated on the proposed Wimbledon - Sutton extension.
This route serves to ease both routes 1 and 3, as part of this project the section between Mitcham and Beddington Lane has been double tracked. Tramlink are also in talks with Network Rail to have a second platform built at Wimbledon for Tramlink Services.
Six new Stadler Variobahn trams were ordered to enable Tramlink to run this route. All of these have now been delivered, and have all entered service. They will be used over the whole system, and not just on route 4.
