Croydon tram 'at nearly four times speed limit' before fatal crash
Interim report reveals tram was travelling faster than initially thought but signs were too late to allow adequate braking
An investigation into the Croydon tram crash has revealed that the vehicle was speeding faster than originally thought – but has also shown that the speed limit restriction sign would only have been visible long after a driver would need to apply the brakes.
Seven people were killed and 51 injured when the south London Tramlink tram came off the rails on a sharp curve on 9 November last year.
