    I've noticed Tony Miles (Modern Railways) has posted on a couple of posts on wnxx about DfT currently talking to Network Rail about revised electrification completion dates and it seems the 'paused' schemes will be given new completion dates which will be announced in the autumn.

    However, it now looks like North West electrification will also get revised completion dates and the remaining work will be done by a new contractor:

    The fact that BB is pulling out of NW electrification has been under discussion for some weeks in the Blackpool-Manchester thread.

    Phase 6 is actually Oxenholme to Windermere. Lostock Junction (west of Bolton) to Wigan is phase 7.

    I'm surprised this is news to you. The Secretary of State announced this to parliament in June when he announced the pausing of the projects.

    What is that Roger Ford keeps saying
    Never trust a forecast based on the seasons.
