Scotrail electrification boosted. - Posted: July 1, 2022 - 7:17 PM Quote and reply
Network Rail will invest more than £120m of Scottish Government funding in the next three years to boost the electricity power supply into Scotlandís railway network.

The investment will see six new feeder stations at strategic locations across the network and a further nine upgraded.

A contract to deliver the initial phase of work has been awarded to SPL Powerlines.

ScotGov commented "Upgrading the power supply network will enable the introduction of electric trains on services to East Kilbride and Barrhead, on the Borders line and across Fife but will also support increased traffic on existing routes such as the East Coast Mainline"
