Passengers advised of major works to install new lifts at Watford Junction

Passengers are being advised about work starting in two weeks to replace lifts at Watford Junction station.

The major overhaul to all three lifts, which serve the platforms, will take place over the next three months starting on Monday 28 October until February 2020.

To speed up the work, all three lifts will be improved at the same time, meaning that all will be out of use for passengers.

Anyone who needs step-free access to trains is being advised to book assisted travel with London Northwestern Railway by calling 0800 024 8997.

Sarah Higgins, head of stations for London Northwestern Railway told HAREFIELD RADIO:

“We know improving the lifts at Watford Junction is a priority for our passengers and during this important work our staff will do all we can to ensure the travelling experience is as smooth as possible.

We urge affected customers to plan their journeys carefully and to consider using alternative stations where appropriate.”
