A spokesman for the Great North Rail Project said: "With all foundations done and steel masts fitting almost complete on the Manchester-Bolton-Preston upgrade, we were busy installing wires on the Yarrow viaduct in Chorley this weekend."

There will be replacement bus services running between Preston and Manchester over the weekends until the project is completed.
