She spoke to Parliamentary Under Secretary of State at the Department for Transport, MP Andrew Jones, about the possibility of a passing loop at Bricket Wood Station on the St Albans Abbey to Watford Junction shuttle line.

The new development comes after a campaign group called AbFly crowdfunded and commissioned a Passing Loop Feasibility Study from The Railway Consultancy.

She said: "I hope we are now making real progress with this.

"The rail minister was very supportive and his offer to help bring people together was encouraging.

"Local people have been pushing for this passing loop for years and the work that has gone into putting this study together is very impressive.

"As we look to the future, more homes are going to be built and that means more people. Improving connectivity between St Albans and Watford is going to be even more important and will be a major positive for the local economy."
