The design of the new Croxley Rail Link will be discussed by politicians in Rickmansworth tonight.

Three Rivers District Council’s sustainable environment policy and scrutiny committee will be meeting at Three Rivers House, in Northway, at 7.30pm.

Councillors will be discussing three conditions of the Croxley Rail Link, which will connect Croxley station to Watford Junction via Watford High Street.

Although planning permission has already been granted by the government, conditions of the Croxley Rail Link still need to be approved by local authorities, Three Rivers and Watford.

Three Rivers will be looking at the conditions regarding landscaping, design and highways access.

Residents are welcome to attend the meeting.

The residents of Croxley, Rickmansworth, Chorleywood, Chesham, Chalfont, et al, will never have been so well connected to Network Rail services running all over the Country! So any qualms about the environmental impact can be dismissed, as the knock-on effect will be to reduce carbon emissions in the affected areas by reduced car\bus travel & less parking places needed at Stations and less traffic on local roads.

So just get on and build the bl**dy thing will you! These meetings will do nothing but prolong the wait for those of us that will regularly use the new service.

I live near Watford Junction and can't wait for the link, it will be great to be on the Met Line in central Watford. With the overground already in operation and a great mainline hopefully it will help to further revitalise this part of town.

All we need then is a decent frequency on the Abbey Line!
Not difficult is it?
