Carillion has been working on the £40million electrification of the 50km Cumbernauld – Glasgow Queen Street line since June 2013, having been awarded the contract by Network Rail in January 2013 as part of the first phase of electrification under the £650million Edinburgh-Glasgow Improvement Programme (EGIP). The project is part of an £80million investment in the Cumbernauld – Glasgow line.
Carillion is also lengthening platforms at Cumbernauld station and building new turn back facilities at Springburn. The project is scheduled to be completed in time for the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow in July, which Kingdom is also providing security for.
