The Anonymous Widower

Has Work Stopped On The Met Line Extension?

This question is asked in the title of this article in the St. Albans Review.

The full title is.

Has work stopped on the Met Line extension? TfL worker says work is suspended.

TfL say the project is just being examined in detail.

I think, that when the Croxley Rail Link is built, it will be very different to what Hertfordshire planned.

I gave my view in TfL Seeks New Procurement Plan For Metropolitan Line Extension

I proposed a simpler design.

  • Watford station would remain open.
  • A four tph link would run all day between Watford Junction and Amersham stations.
  • Trains could be Class 710 trains or similar.
  • Stops would be at Watford High Street, Vicarage Road, Cassiobridge, Croxley, Rickmansworth, Chorleywood and Chalfont & Latimer.
  • No new electrification.
  • Single-track in places to reduce costs.

No-one would get a worse service than currently and the new stations of Cassiobridge and Vicarage Road, would make rail an alternative for many travellers.
