Electrification of the Line – Greenhill Junction, Polmont Junction and Grangemouth Junction up to Larbert Junction

As part of the Scottish Government’s on-going strategic transport investment, Network Rail is continuing to deliver work to electrify the railway across central Scotland.

Following the electrification of the main line between Edinburgh and Glasgow (via Falkirk High) in the autumn of 2017, the current phase of works extends from Grangemouth and Falkirk, through Stirling to Alloa and Dunblane under the SDA electrification programme.

The section of the route between Greenhill JunctionPolmont Junction and Grangemouth Junction up to Larbert Junction is the latest to be electrified. Network Rail is advising lineside communities that the overhead lines will be LIVE and DANGEROUS.

Electrification of the railway will means increased capacity on routes by improving the infrastructure to enable longer, faster and greener modern electric trains to run.
