Rail link closes for maintenance

Commuters using the main rail line from Manchester Airport to Blackpool North face delays over the next six weeks while engineering work takes place.

The line is closed between Preston and Chorley until 8 September for work to be done on the Chorley Flying Arches.

A bus will run between the two stations but there will only be one train an hour for stations such as Adlington, Blackrod, Horwich Parkway and Bolton.

The work affects trains run by First Transpennine Express and Northern Rail.
