Last time we took a look at construction progress at the former Wilko’s site in Blackpool, which will become the UK’s newest tram terminus (when it opens in 2022), we saw the first signs of the concrete track base being installed and that work has been continuing in the days since that article as we see in this latest update. And not only has the concrete base seen progress but there is the first sign of track be readied for installation too!
With trams said to be due to start running in early 2022, and other work still to be completed, the next few months are likely to be fairly busy along Talbot Road and up to this new terminus. Not only does the last section of track need to be installed but the actual terminus needs to be built and the entire route up from the Prom also needs the overhead installed. There are also some snagging works to be completed along the route.
We will all be watching with interest as to what happens!
