[Manchester] Bolton weekend train services set to return starting this weekend
Bolton weekend train services set to return starting this weekend

WEEKEND train services are set to return to Bolton after a five-month absence.

There will be three to four trains per hour from tomorrow as Trinity Street train station re-opens to weekend passengers.

The station has been closed at weekends since the start of May as engineers work to enlarge the Farnworth Tunnel ahead of electrification of the line next year.

The complex engineering project — which has also had a knock on effect on the town's roads and was due to be completed last week — is now set to continue until December.

But despite this delay, rail chiefs last night confirmed that a reduced weekend service will return to Bolton.

Northern Rail has published a new weekend timetable which begins tomorrow and it includes trains between Bolton and Manchester three or four times an hour.
