So the announcement was made in early December of the Chariots of the Gods. One project I will be following and vlogging about for you.
Highbury Road Bridge in St Annes will soon be seeing major structural repairs undertaken by removal of the long metal beds that spanned across the length of the bridge as these are classed as eroding beyond repair.
I try not to get political, this piece is not a primary view of my intention or a party political statement, however never mind the uncertainty of Brexit what about our railways. An important area of vast investment and interest that made our country great.

¡Hola! 195, A vista to hold in memory with the other train first's for Blackpool. We had the Pendolino's last year shortly followed by Northern's 319 electric sets.
It was only a few weeks back I spoke to a member of Northern Rail staff, a guard working the Lancaster to Heysham service when he explained he felt the Pacers will stay a little longer on the network.
£500m of new trains spent by Northern Rail will reach into Blackpool North early 2019. A great step forward bringing state of the art diesel train sets onto the Fylde coast.
If you can remember this time last year Harrowside bridge was shut, and so was Squires Gate Bridge causing a few annoyed drivers and residents as commuting was almost impossible.
The official testing of the now completed Phase 4 electrification upgrade.
Manchester to Preston railway line - electrification upgrade. This line goes via Bolton Station hence the name ’the Bolton corridor’.
The area around here is the old Blackpool Central Railway Station
Demolished in 1964 nothing was really every developed here - just became one of the biggest car parks in the UK. We had a court built, a police station, then later a coach park.
