London’s new rail line to use four transformer stations
United Kingdom, London: In just over a year, Crossrail, a new rail line with 117 kilometres of track, will cut through central London to connect Reading in the west with Abbey Wood and Shenfield in the east.
For the project, four transformer stations will be set up across the route: in Westbourne Park, Stepney Green, Custom House and Plumstead, reports Smartrailworld.com.
The project also involves the construction of supply points and autotransformer feeder stations at each end of the railway.
Tagged as Europe’s biggest infrastructure project, the new east-west train line running through one of the most congested cities in the world, has required building 10 brand-new stations and digging a 21-kilometre tunnel that will eventually increase central London’s transport capacity by 10%.
