As part of the rail industry’s multi-billion-pound Great North Rail Project, the route between Manchester and Preston is being upgraded to enable better and more reliable electric trains to run.
Network Rail’s Team Orange has been working round-the-clock to install overhead electric wires and carry out adjustments to several station platforms on the route.
To date, engineers have installed 78 wire runs out of a total 98. The wires are being attached to more than 1500 newly installed steel structures and will supply power to greener and quieter electric trains. (NR Media)
