engineering-works-egip-piling-1035x545Network Rail is offering local people in Stirling and Bridge of Allan the chance to ‘drop in’ to find out more about work to electrify the railway lines through Stirling.

 

Piling will be ongoing through these areas from October until the end of November and everyone is being invited to come along to informal events in Stirling Rugby Club and the Allan Community Centre to meet the team, learn more about the work and ask any questions about the project.

 

The work is part of the electrification of the railway from Grangemouth and Falkirk, through Stirling to Alloa and Dunblane which will enable, longer, faster, greener modern electric trains. The project is being delivered by Network Rail on behalf of the Scottish Government.

 

Community Drop-ins:

Thursday 19th October 4.30pm – 7.30pm, Stirling County Rugby Football Club, Bridgehaugh Park, Stirling, FK9 5AP

 

Tuesday 24th October, 4pm – 7pm, Allan Community Centre (PE Room), Fountain Road, Bridge of Allan, FK9 9AT

 

 

The electrification project also includes bridge works at Perth Road in Dunblane and Kerse Road in Stirling, with enhancement works to station platforms also underway at Falkirk Grahamston, Larbert and Camelon.

 

Network Rail will finish the main electrification works in 2019. This builds on the recent delivery of electrification between Edinburgh and Glasgow via Falkirk High, the Cumbernauld line, the redevelopment of Edinburgh’s Haymarket station and the completion of the Edinburgh Gateway train-tram interchange.

 

Dave Boyce, Network Rail’s senior communications manager for the project, said: “This electrification programme will transform travel on Scotland’s railway and we’d like to encourage the community to come to these events, where they can find out more about our plans.”
