    Passengers in the North West are being warned about a five-day closure of the railway which starts next weekend to renew a bridge over the Leeds Liverpool Canal.
    The railway bridge in Burscough will be completely replaced as part of the Great North Rail Project ensuring more reliable journeys for passengers for years to come.
    In order to carry out the major work no trains will run between Southport or Parbold stations from Saturday 16 until Wednesday 20 November.
    Passengers are being advised that bus replacement services will operate during that time.
    To allow engineers to carry out the work, there will also be a seven-day closure of the canal towpath beneath the bridge from Friday 15 November.
    During the closure, more than 400m of track drainage will also be upgraded at Hoscar station.
    Additionally sleepers and sections of rail we be upgraded around Southport station to improve journeys for passengers.
    Ian Jones, route delivery director for Network Rail’s North West route, said: “This essential refurbishment is part of the Great North Rail Project and will mean that the bridge will be fit for purpose for decades to come. I'm sorry for any impact the work will have and would like to thank passengers in advance for their patience.”
    Chris Jackson, regional director at Northern, said: “The bridge renewal is a vital part of work to future-proof the railway and we are working hard with Network Rail to keep disruption to a minimum. We will do all we can to keep our customers on the move whilst the work is carried out.”
    Rail travellers are being advised to allow extra time for their journeys and to check before they travel at www.nationalrail.co.uk.

    Is this information correct?

    The only reference to planned engineering works on those dates I can find on the Northern site is this:

    Planned engineering work will take place between Southport and Manchester Victoria on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, from 22:18, Monday 18 November 2019 to 00:23, Friday 22 November 2019.

    Additional Information:
    The following trains WILL NOT CALL at Salford Central:
    2218 Southport to Manchester Victoria
    2219 Blackburn to Wigan

    It looks as though no trains will run between Southport and Parbold but talking to a regular commuter it seems that some of the replacement buses will go to Parbold and some to Wigan. Does anyone know what exactly is happening?
