The full redevelopment of Watford Junction Station

Watford Conservatives started this petition to Department for transport and

As Watford Junction passengers know, the station is outdated, overcrowded and the access arrangements are not fit for purpose. We want to see better drop off and pick up, better car and bicycle parking provision, a new forecourt, more food and retail outlets and another access point to the station.

We support the aims of Richard Harrington, Watford’s MP, who is working towards the full redevelopment of the station.

Watford Borough Council have published a draft development brief for the station and the area but since the 1970s there have been several proposals to redevelop the station and the area - this time let's make it happen! Sign the petition today.

The proposals outlined by the Council would also regenerate the wider Watford Junction area, not just the station facilities. New buildings could be up to 20 stories tall. We support many of the proposed changes but as new homes and office space is proposed we don’t want the main objective to be forgotten – improving the passenger experience, station use and safety.

The Croxley Rail Link had also been promised since the ‘70s but we made it happen! Let’s get the job done here too.

With over 1.5 million more journeys taken from the station than five years ago and the Met Line soon to be linked to the Junction, its redevelopment is even more urgent.

Richard Harrington MP will present the petition to Rail Ministers and Network Rail and keep you updated on the campaign.
