Watford mayor Dorothy Thornhill pledges to continue MLX fight

Watford mayor Dorothy Thornhill says she will carry on fighting to deliver the Metropolitan Line Extension (MLX) after London Mayor Sadiq Khan said Transport for London would not be delivering the project.

Mayor Thornhill said: “This is certainly not the end of the line for the MLX. Government has committed £73million additional funding, which just goes to show how certain they are the scheme will deliver huge benefits – not just to Watford, but to Londoners and commuters. It’s premature to say the scheme is dead and if it is purely about the cost risk we need to find a solution.

“To make this happen I will be urgently working with all our key partners. Not having the MLX will cost us jobs and new investment, so there is no way I am giving this up without a fight. I am confident there is still a deal to be done.”
