Advisory and concept development and complex project delivery

Network Rail appointed a Costain, Alstom and Babcock joint venture [ABC Electrification Ltd] to deliver a major electrification programme, delivering electrification to more than two thousand miles of the UK’s rail system which represents the biggest programme of rail electrification in a generation. ABC Electrification will deliver the design, supply, system testing and commissioning, entry into service and transfer of maintenance responsibility of all overhead line works necessary to provide a 25kV electrification system across complex schemes in the southern section of the London North Western route. The works will lead to more frequent services, longer, greener trains and an improvement in the commuting experience for passengers.
