Town Tube station in the pipeline?
12 December 2007
RUMOURS are rife once again that Potters Bar is set to get its own
underground station.

A member of a discussion forum has claimed there are plans to extend
the London Underground's Northern Line up to the town to ease
congestion.

According to a source who works for Transport for London (TfL), he
said: "King's Cross now has overcrowding problems mostly from people
going on the Northern Line.

"The [new] loop would start at Edgware going along the line that was
planned for the Northern Heights."

This planned route would split off into three branches just north of
Highgate, according to old plans for the route that was never built.

One line would include stations at Bushey Heath, Elstree and
eventually Potters Bar.

Another would include stations at Borehamwood and South Mimms before
reaching Potters Bar.

The source also claimed there were plans for high speed trains to stop
at Potters Bar. This could mean a new station being built, with the
existing one either downgraded, or closed and maybe redeveloped as a
shopping complex.

He added: "The results would see Potters Bar becoming the transport
hub for both south Hertfordshire and North London.

"It would also see reduced transport times to Watford, Radlett and
many towns."

He claimed the project could be started in 2010 and finished by 2012.

But the rail industry has denied the claims.

A spokeswoman for TfL's London Underground department said: "I have
spoken to the manager of the Northern Line.

"There are currently no plans to look into extending the Northern Line
to Potters Bar."

A spokesman for First Capital Connect, which owns the franchise for
the overground route that currently runs through the town, also denied
all knowledge.

A spokeswoman for Network Rail, which manages the train lines, spoke
about the fast overground trains.

She said: "From our perspective, there are no plans for high speed
trains to stop at Potters Bar
