I was interested to see that Watford Junction has been shortlisted in a category for Britain’s best station.

As a regular use of the station, I believe the station itself seems to be relatively well run and the staff mainly helpful, but the train service itself is generally poor these days.

It seems to me that more time/effort is used for cycle users than passengers generally, especially those who are dropped off at the station, where there is no drop off point in the immediate vicinity of the station. The short term parking area is too far from the station itself and cannot be easily reached due to the one way street leading to it. The buses seem to have far too much room to the detriment of the car/taxi users. It seems to me to have been badly planned.
