Chorley bridges close for upgrade
Two bridges in Chorley are the subject of closures as work continues on Network Rail’s Manchester-Preston via Chorley electrification project.
From April 2, Bridge Street will close for 16 nights between 2200 and 0600 (except on Fridays), while Lyons Lane Bridge will close for 12 nights from April 22 (also except for Fridays).
Parapets on both bridges are to be raised to meet clearance standards for overhead power lines being installed underneath. Fencing on both bridges will also be upgraded to improve security during the closures.
