ALTHOUGH train services will be running between Bolton and Manchester again tomorrow, the station where a railway bridge collapsed will remain shut.

Northern Rail has confirmed that Moses Gate station will be closed for the rest of this week following ‘issues in the area’.

While rail services will still be running along the line, they will not call at Moses Gate.

There will also be no buses from the station, and passengers have been advised to travel to Bolton station for their journey.

On August 17, a burst water main caused a section of the bridge to collapse at Moses Gate onto the railway below and created a hole in the road above.

Bolton Road remains closed while repair works are carried out and it is expected re-open within the original six week estimate.

Network Rail bosses say that their repairs have been ‘a complex engineering challenge’ which has needed workers on site around-the-clock to complete ahead of schedule.
