Train services between Blackpool and Manchester will be disrupted while major work is carried out at one of the stations along the route.

Network Rail has announced a number of weekend closures of the main line through Chorley which links Blackpool and Preston to Manchester Victor and Manchester Airport.

The line between Preston and Bolton will have to be closed every weekend from Saturday 18 June to Sunday 2 October while the upgrades take place.

Network Rail is lowering the track at Chorley to accommodate overhead electrical wires and extending the platforms to handle longer trains which operator Northern plans to introduce.
