In Pictures: Blackpool wiring work starts to move along Talbot Road

Since the overhead installation for the Blackpool Tramway extension began last month it has been taking place on the section where the new line connects with the old Prom line. This has seen overhead put in place on the south and north curves along with various span wires and frogs in preparation for trams both pantograph and trolley fitted. But now work is moving along Talbot Road with the first span wires now in place up to the new Premier Inn (on the site of the old Yates’ Wine Lodge). We take a look at those new wires – as well as a quick look at Wilko’s – in this latest pictorial update.

The span wires get as far as halfway along the Premier Inn building.
