1.

As part of the current proposal for the Croxley Rail Link http://www.croxleyraillink.com/, the Metropolitan Line Station at Watford would CLOSE. Closing it would be a disaster for many local families.

Watford Met station is incredibly well used - 1.5 million entry/exits a year (2009 figures) - not only by the thousands of residents of the Cassiobury estate (including the section to the north of the park) but also by many others in West Watford (for whom it would still be nearer than the proposed new station at Two Bridges), hundreds of schoolchildren attending Watford Boys Grammar and many travelling out of Watford to Rickmansworth School and beyond.
