Rail line between Bristol and Cardiff electrified

In UK, Balfour Beatty, working on behalf of Network Rail, has completed the electrification of 77 km of the Great Western Railway (GWR) line between Bristol and Cardiff, a significant contribution to Network Rail’s overall greater west electrification programme to electrify 275 km of train line between Cardiff and London.


In order to deliver the works on time, over 750 Balfour Beatty operatives undertook complex works over the Christmas period, completing the final installation of the overhead cables at Cardiff central station, marking the completion of over 4,200 masts and booms, responsible for holding the 643 km of electric cabling associated with the 77 km section of route.
