Watford Council is delighted to announce that Croxley Rail Link has been allocated central government money to enable work to go ahead.
The project now has all the funding needed to construct the new section of tube line. This new piece of line is a proposed diversion and extension of the Watford branch of the Metropolitan line to Watford Junction via Watford High Street.
New stations will be provided on the new rail link at Ascot Road and Vicarage road.
Councillor Stuart Pile thinks that this scheme will bring real economic and transport benefits to the south-west of the county, as lack of transport infrastructure is one of the things holding back economic development in the area.
Due to the hard work of Watford Council, over a number of years, Watford will now have the investment needed to make a real difference to the local economy.
