Description

Engineering work is taking place each night between Manchester Victoria and Smithy Bridge, closing some lines.

As a result, the 23:13 Blackpool North to Manchester Airport service will not call at Buckshaw Parkway, Adlington, Blackrod and Lostock. A replacement bus service will run between Preston and Manchester Piccadilly for customers who are travelling to and from these stations.
