Great Western Electrification

This project will update the Great Western rail network, which hasn’t been updated since it was built in the Victorian period so that it can accommodate, cleaner, quieter and more reliable electric trains in the place of diesel carriages.
hs2 expected journey times

Benefits:

Electricity is much more reliable than its diesel counterparts and requires less work to keep running as efficiently as possible, which will free up maintenance budgets to invest and further develop other rail networks.

These trains will be significantly better for the environment as their carbon emissions are between twenty and thirty five percent lower than diesel trains. The benefit of this is that it will reduce the amount of pollutants in built up cities and towns.

Electrification will benefit the community as the mechanisms are much quieter than diesel trains, which means less disruption for people who live alongside any of these railway lines and for passengers on the train itself.

The project of electrification began in 2010 and is expected to finish around 2017 and as a result needs skilled electricians and engineers to ensure the smooth running of the project.
