BLACKPOOL - Posted: November 7, 2017 - 11:00 AM Quote and reply
The line from Preston to Blackpool North & South closes 11th November for up to 4 months. Current situation re electrification is
Manchester to Euxton Jn some poles erected but many gaps no wires between Ordsall Lane /Salford Central & Buckshaw Parkway, electrication due to be completed next month !! Network Rail say delay due to known and unknown mine workings. Preston to Blackpool most of the poles erected except at Kirkham, Poulton, Layton, & Blackpool North although poles erected in the new stabling sidings at Blackpool North, no wires up yet.
