  • Edinburgh to Glasgow Electrification (Mark Churchill, Amey)

    The Edinburgh to Glasgow Queen Street (via Falkirk High) electrification scheme
    comprises a major component of the Edinburgh to Glasgow lmprovement Programme
    (EGIP), complementing the already completed scheme between Springburn and
    Cumbernauld and facilitating the subsequent extension of electric services to Stirling,
    Dunblane and Alloa. ln this presentation Mark Churchill details the works undertaken in the
    scheme during his service with Alstom as an overhead line engineer.
    The presentation gives an account of the route modernisation works which
    accompanied the erection of overhead line equipment. lt also explains the principles of
    overhead line electrification, highlighting particular project innovations such as the design of
    special overhead line equipment to reduce the amount of track lowering in Queen Street,
    Falkirk and Winchburgh tunnels. lnnovative construction practices employed during the
    installation of the overhead line equipment are also covered, together with the processes of
    engineering acceptance, verification, testing and commissioning.
