PLANNING FOR RAILWAY ELECTRIFICATION

Railroads considering electrification should prepare a development program covering at least 20 years which can be periodically reviewed and made to indicate those routes which may even possibly be considered for electrification. Such plans enable new works such as bridges, cable laying and power line crossings to be installed in conformity with desired electrical clearances. The transition from diesel to electric traction must also be planned comprehensively.
