Thousands sign petition to save station from closure

 Published on: 7th December 2016   |   By: The Newsdesk   |   Category:

A petition opposing the closure of Watford Metropolitan has been signed by almost 3,000 local people and commuters. The organisers of the petition, concerned Cassiobury residents Carol Scleater and Michael Fish, presented the signatures to Watford MP Richard Harrington and Conservative Nascot and Park county council candidate David Fallon early last month. Watford Metropolitan Station is currently closing once the Metropolitan Line Extension (MLE) is complete. The MLE will link Watford Junction to the Metropolitan Line at Croxley via two new stations at Cassiobridge and Vicarage Road and the existing Watford High Street Station. The petition specifically outlines the usefulness of the station to Cassiobury residents, Watford Boys pupils, park users and local commuters whilst also supporting the MLE. In his supporting letter to the petition, Mr Harrington pointed out that many of the 3000 passengers using the station on weekdays will have to walk much further to Cassiobridge Station and many including the elderly will use their cars to access the new station if Watford Met Station is forced to close.
