Answered By: 
The Mayor

Extending Crossrail services to Hertfordshire would improve connectivity and bring new economic opportunities to North West London. It is also clear that if Crossrail services are extended to Hertfordshire, stops at Wembley Central and Harrow & Wealdstone would be beneficial.

TfL is currently looking into the feasibility of potential extensions with the Department for Transport. Other stations could include Tring, Hemel Hempstead, and Watford, Berkhampstead, Bushey, Kings Langley and Apsley – subject to the outcomes of the feasibility study.

As with any potential extension, a range of factors must be taken into consideration, including cost, economic growth, passenger demand forecasts, service reliability and journey times. These will all be considered as feasibility work progresses, and no decision will be taken until the outcomes of this work are known.
