Trains travel on electric power from London to Cardiff for the first time

12 June 2020

Network Rail has finished work on upgrading the Severn Tunnel, and now passengers can travel on a fully electric railway from Cardiff and Newport, through the Severn Tunnel and onwards to Bristol and Swindon, the Thames Valley and London Paddington.

Completing the upgrade of the tunnel has been a decade in the making and a £5.58bn investment in rolling stock and infrastructure. The new electrification of the line has reduced journey times between South Wales and London by an average of 14 minutes, resulted in an extra 15,000 seats during the week and means greener journeys for passengers as they travel to and from South Wales on GWR’s Intercity Express Trains.

Network Rail have produced a short video around the project here.
