The Oyster card scheme will be rolled out at two stations "very soon".

Hertsmere MP Oliver Dowden says Oyster and Pay-as-you-go (PAYG) technology will be available at Radlett and Potters Bar stations imminently following a successful campaign.

The new scheme means passengers will be able to tap in and out easily and save money.

For passengers who travel irregularly or prefer to ‘turn up and go’, Oyster and PAYG will be the most convenient and cheapest option to travel. Passengers who purchase a Radlett to London Underground Zones 1-2 return ticket for instance will save £4.80 by using their Oyster or contactless card instead.

Mr Dowden said delivering Oyster to Radlett and Potters Bar was one of his "key priorities" since he was elected in 2015.

He has met regularly with rail ministers and the transport secretary over the last three years and lobbied for the funding.

At the end of last year, he revealed his campaign had been successful and since then, it has been a waiting game for the scheme to be officially rolled out - final testing is being carried out by Transport for London.

Mr Dowden said: "I'm delighted to have confirmation that Radlett and Potters Bar stations are ready for Oyster. I look forward to officially launching the system very soon.

"I know how important the extension of Oyster and contactless cards has been to people in Radlett and Potters Bar and I am delighted that my long campaign has finally come to a successful end."
