Never let it be said the British can't do big infrastructure projects
On a related note, I see that we (probably) have the capability to link bits of Watford with other bits of Watford. http://www.croxleyraillink.com/
In my mind, Watford Met and Watford Junction are further apart than they appear to be in reality. This suggests another trip to me, walking between the two. Obviously I will go back to travel the magnificent new engineering project when it opens.
I see also that some sort of compromise has been reached on the bats in Wolvercote tunnel, perhaps. I imagine though that with the alleged funding for the East - West link Western part, the bats may find themselves blindfolded, turned round three times and left to fend for themselves.
