Engineers start installing overhead power cables on the main Edinburgh-Glasgow line this autumn as work to electrify the route in 2016 gathers pace.

Part of the Scottish Government- funded £742 million Edinburgh- Glasgow Improvement Programme (EGIP), electrification work will mean faster, longer trains on the Edinburgh Waverley-Glasgow Queen Street line from December next year.

Over the next six months, engineers will be installing stanchions to support the new overhead lines and stringing 100 miles of power cables between the two cities.

Says Rodger Querns, EGIP programme director, ‘The Edinburgh Glasgow Improvement Programme is a massive investment in Scotland’s railway that will help deliver long- lasting benefits for both individual passengers and the wider economy.’
