BR GREAT NORTHERN SUBURBAN ELECTRIFICATION--TRACK REMODELING AND ASSOCIATED CIVIL ENGINEERING

Extensive track realignment and the rebuilding of stations and bridges are involved in electrification of 110 km of British Rail lines used for suburban service into Kings Cross and Moorgate stations. Multi-span brick arch road overpasses had to be replaced completely using explosive and hydraulic jacks for demolition. Details of track changes to permit express speeds of up to 200 kph and local and branch line speeds of 120 kph are discussed. The lines' inner areas will have both 750-V third rail and 25-kV catenary for power distribution.
