    Passengers in the North West are being warned about a five-day closure of the railway in November to renew a bridge over the Leeds Liverpool Canal.


    The railway bridge in Burscough will be completely replaced as part of the Great North Rail Project ensuring more reliable journeys for passengers for years to come.
    In order to carry out the major work no trains will run between Southport or Parbold stations from Saturday 16 until Wednesday 20 November.
    Passengers are being advised that bus replacement services will operate during that time.
    To allow engineers to carry out the work, there will also be a seven-day closure of the canal towpath beneath the bridge from Friday 15 November.
    During the closure, more than 400m of track drainage will also be upgraded at Hoscar Lane station.
    Additionally sleepers and sections of rail we be upgraded around Southport station to improve journeys for passengers.

    This seems to be a less than complete copy and paste from either Network Rail or Sefton Focus.

    What does this mean?
    "In order to carry out the major work no trains will run between Southport or Parbold stations from Saturday 16 until Wednesday 20 November."

    Leaflets are to be distributed on 14 October during the morning peak travel period and posters displayed at affected stations.

    More detail would be helpful for the long-suffering Northern commuters.

    Will the replacement bus service be from Southport to Wigan calling at all intermediate stations or what?
