Sandilands tram stop is a light rail stop in the London Borough of Croydon in the southern suburbs of London. It serves the residential area along Addiscombe Road to the east of the centre of the town of Croydon.

The tram stop is served by all four Tramlink routes.[3]

Connections

London Buses routes 119; 194; 198; 466 serve the station.

Layout

Immediately to the east of the tram stop, the line descends in cutting to a junction with the trackbed of the former Woodside and South Croydon Railway. Tramlink routes 3 and 4 diverge to the south along this trackbed, whilst routes 1 and 2 diverge to the north along the same trackbed. To the west of the stop, the line runs alongside Addiscombe Road on a reserved track as far as the junction with Chepstow Road. From Chepstow Road the line runs within Addiscombe Road, sharing road space with buses and local traffic.

The area of Sandilands tram stop was one of the few places where property demolition was needed during the construction of Tramlink, in order to make way for both the stop and the cutting link to the former railway line.
