The Croxley Rail Link to divert the Metropolitan Line's Watford branch to Watford Junction via the disused Croxley Green branch has been heavily supported and will see the return of London Underground trains, albeit formed of the Metropolitan Line's surface stock rather than the deep level stock of the Bakerloo Line. It received the funding required in December 2011 and London Underground and Hertfordshire County Council are now applying for a Transport and Works Act (TWA) Order.
There has also been plans, however, to re-extend the Bakerloo Line back to Watford Junction. This would result in another London Underground line servicing the station. If this was to happen it has been stated that London Overground services will be withdrawn from the Watford DC Line completely.
