THE East of England to have its first tram service of the modern era. Two services an hour will operate between Watford and St Albans under a plan announced today by Hertfordshire county council and transport secretary Lord Adonis.
Said Lord Adonis said: “To encourage more people to use public transport, it's vital we give passengers a service which suits them.
“The proposed new trams would provide a more regular service and I am glad to be working with Hertfordshire county council to take forward these exciting plans.”
The service would replace the current rail connection between the two towns.
