There will be a bus replacement service running between Southport and Parbold station on 16-20 November. This is due to the renewal of a bridge over Leads and Liverpool canal which necessitates the closure of the line. The following stations will have bus replacement services between them over that time:
- Meols Cop
- Bescar Lane
- New Lane
- Burscough Bridge
- Appley Bridge
Chris Jackson, regional director at Northern, said: “The bridge renewal is a vital part of work to future-proof the railway and we are working hard with Network Rail to keep disruption to a minimum. We will do all we can to keep our customers on the move whilst the work is carried out.”
There will also be a closure of the canal towpath beneath the bridge from 15 - 22 November.
