Cutting vegetation back a safe distance from the tracks enables train drivers to clearly see signals – the traffic lights of the railway – and to spot potential hazards as soon as possible.


Network Rail staff will be on hand to explain why this work is so important and answer any questions at:


Lostock Parish Centre, Tempest Road, Lostock, BL6 4EL; between 4pm and 7pm on Tuesday 5 December 2017
A spokesperson for Network Rail said: “Vegetation management is an essential part of railway maintenance and this work is crucial to keeping both trains and passengers safe on the network.


“We encourage our lineside neighbours to come along to understand the work we are doing and any impact it will have on them.


“Our project team will be there to answer any questions from residents and address any concerns they may have.”


The work, taking place between Monday and Friday and mainly during daylight hours, will continue until February 2018. Where work has to take place at night when trains are not running residents will be individually notified.
