Croxley Rail Link[edit]

The Croxley Rail Link is a railway engineering project. When complete, Watford branch services on the London Underground's Metropolitan line will be diverted at Baldwins Lane from the current terminus at Watford tube station onto the alignment of the disused Watford and Rickmansworth Railway between Croxley Green railway station and Watford High Street stations before continuing to Watford Junction. The diversion requires the construction of a viaduct over the Grand Union Canal, River Gade and A412 road.
