Progress Reports

A number of correspondents have provided progress updates:
  • A work site, currently empty, has appeared just west of Huyton Junction on the north side of the line at the site of Huyton Quarry station.
  • Mast bases have started appearing between Huyton and Eccleston Park.
  • Lots of new cable troughing and new rails in the Newton/Earlestown area.
  • The switching/substation site at Newton-le-Willows appears externally complete.
  • Wiring also appears complete on the Parkside Junction to Lowton Junction curve.
  • The length of catenary going east from Parkside Junction is getting a lot longer.
  • New cable troughing is being laid east of Eccles.
My thanks to all who took the trouble to email me.
