PEOPLE hit with disruption over Bolton’s electrification programme are set to meet with rail officials this week.

Residents of Church Road in Farnworth have been heavily affected by vehicles travelling to and from a compound at the end of the street.

Andrew Morgan, a senior sponsor for the programme with Network Rail, will also attend the meeting to hear people’s complaints.

Kearsley councillor Mark Cunningham will chair the event, and said it is a chance for people to explain the issues.

He said: “Network Rail’s Andrew Morgan is going to be there and we are hoping he will answer the questions we have got for him.

“It’s a chance for people to bring up all the issues we have had. He will be able to face the residents and discuss the problems and what will be done.”

Work on the railways often takes place late at night when trains have stopped running, which means large vehicles have been travelling along the street at unusual hours.

The meeting is open to anyone affected by activities at the compound and will be held at 7.45pm at Trinity Methodist Church on Thursday.
