Rail passengers asked for views on tram services

Rail passengers will be given a chance to have their say on proposals to introduce a new tram offering a regular service between Watford and St Albans with the launch of a consultation today.

The exciting plans would enable passengers to travel between St Albans and Watford on a regular half-hourly tram and allow for the possibility of an even greater frequency of three trams per hour. The consultation, launched by the Department for Transport and Hertfordshire County Council, is the latest stage of the proposal, which was launched by Transport Secretary Andrew Adonis during a visit to St Albans in October. Andrew Adonis said: "We want to encourage more people to use public transport and the creation of a regular tram link on this line to replace the irregular train service would benefit passengers immensely. I am excited by the prospects it offers to boost business and travel opportunities in this part of Hertfordshire. "These improvements would offer rail users a better and more flexible service. Local people are best placed to make decisions about local transport which is why I would strongly urge them to take part in the consultation."
