Since taking over the Metropolitan Line Extension in November 2015, TfL has carried out substantial design, development and enabling work, which is due to complete this spring. TfL continues to work with Hertfordshire County Council and the Department for Transport to ensure the affordability of the project.

There is a growth fund in the TfL Business Plan for transport projects which will unlock growth and regeneration. The list of projects covered by the fund is still being reviewed but could include the Metropolitan Line Extension.
