In Pictures: More wiring work at the old Wilko’s site
Another day and another update from Blackpool where we take a look at recent progress on the construction work being undertaken for the extension of the tramway to Blackpool North Railway Station. In this update we again head up to the old Wilko’s site where there have been more span wires installed on the newly erected overhead poles whilst the line ears are now also being installed. Meanwhile, there is also progress with further concreting being done at the terminus.
In this view we look at the entrance into the site (with the tracks from Talbot Road seen in the foreground) with the newly installed span wires attached the black overhead poles clearly visible. All span wires are now up on these poles.
