  1. Siemens Avenio trams could be coming to cities in the UK if there are plans to have trams in cities such as Brighton, Southampton, Swansea & York that could be getting new trams with the approval of building new tram tracks that could replace buses. Brighton could be getting new trams as new trams could replace buses and the tracks to be build close to the beach just like at Blackpool.
