Bridge repairs will be carried out at Daisy Hill railway station as early as this Spring, Bolton Council has announced.
The bridge on Leigh Road needs to be repaired because of its age but the work will lead to the closure of the road.
The station will also have a new lift installed after a long-running campaign by your Liberal Democrat councillors.
Town councillor Neil Maher, who is the Liberal Democrat candidate for Westhoughton South in the May 2021 elections, said: “It is great news that we will finally be getting a lift at the station which has been inaccessible for many people. This is something that our team has been campaigning for.”
Design and procurement work for the lift will begin in the coming weeks.
