Before work can begin on electrifying the railway, we need to complete a vast amount of design and preparation work.

Part of the preparatory work includes foundation installation, which we call piling. Piling is required to install foundations which will support Overhead Line Equipment (OLE). Once the piles have been installed, we will then begin to erect trackside posts and overhead wires. This work began in Wales in 2015.
