Atkins and Parsons Brinckerhoff secure Great Western electrification work

Atkins and Parsons Brinckerhoff secure Great Western electrification work : Britain’s Network Rail has appointed a joint team of Atkins and Parsons Brinckerhoff as Lead Design Organisation (LDO) and System Integrator for the electrification of the historic Great Western Mainline.

The contract will prepare the route between London and Cardiff for the introduction of Intercity Express trains in 2017, and is one of the first parts of Network Rail’s £10billion UK-wide electrification programme to be delivered.

Work on the Great Western Mainline is part of Network Rail’s wider electrification programme and will allow the new Hitachi-built Intercity Express trains to run on the line when they arrive in 2017.

As well as designing the overhead line equipment and power systems, Atkins and Parsons Brinckerhoff will also carry out modifications of platforms and bridges and track lowering.
