£78m (is that all?) to electrify Wigan to Lostock Junction.

NR says
"The track between Wigan North Western station and Lostock Junction near Bolton will receive a £78 million upgrade, targeted to complete in 2024/2025.

"Through electrifying almost 13 miles of infrastructure and lengthening platforms, this investment will ensure that CO2 emitting diesel trains are replaced by electric rolling stock. As longer trains with additional capacity, these will provide passengers with greener, more comfortable and more reliable journeys."

As the current services are Southport-Stalybridge and Kirkby-Manchester Vic-Todmorden-Blackburn, will passengers from Southport and Kirkby be changing trains and stations at Wigan?
