What is the current situation?

What are Southern and Network Rail doing to fix the problem?
Network Rail are sending additional resources to site to ensure the area is safe and enable the affected train to be moved. Repair work is also needed on the signalling system around the level crossing.

It has been identified that the accident has caused significant damage to the level crossing and the signalling equipment on site which would require the crossing to remain closed to traffic and trains so that repairs can be made to get the level crossing back to full working order.

Project Information:

Continuing every weekend for the foreseeable future, Network Rail engineers will be working to complete the upgrade of the 25-mile stretch of track between Manchester and Preston via Salford Crescent to support the introduction of better trains.

The project was due to complete back in December 2017, but old mine workings, running sand and varying layers of rock have significantly hampered the installation of hundreds of steel columns needed to carry the power cables for the introduction of electric trains. New engineering solutions have been required to resolve the problems which has included using steel cylinders and filling them with concrete to deal with poor ground conditions.
