Network Rail public information event – Friday 25 November

As you may be aware, Network Rail is electrifying the railway between Preston and Blackpool. The upgrade will provide passengers with better, more reliable journeys and is part of a £1bn+ Network Rail programme of investment to enable electric trains to operate on this line of route.


There are currently changes to early morning and late evening services between Preston and Blackpool which will continue through until spring 2018. In early 2017 there will be a series of weekend closures between Preston and Blackpool, with a further closure of the line later in the year.


Network Rail is holding a series of drop-in sessions at various locations along the Preston to Blackpool route where members of the public can see the improvement plans and ask questions.


A session will be held from 4pm – 7pm on Friday 25 November 2016 at Poulton Civic Centre, Breck Road, Poulton-le-Fylde, Lancashire, FY6 7PU.
