Guided Bus Wigan/Bolton

There have been rumours that electrification of the rail line between Wigan Wallgate/Bolton will no longer take place. The rumour is correct. However, instead of electrification it has been decided to convert part of the railway line into a guided bus system. This will only cover Wigan Wallgate/Bolton and trains will still run from Wigan/Wallgate/Southport/Manchester.
A guided bus route makes more sense as the buses can continue their journeys on the standard road routes.
Anyone who is against this scheme should contact their local council for more details.
