The work was set to be completed by March and then for just before the Easter weekend but following a string of delays, it is not now expected to be finished until May 10.

A diversion remains in place for vehicles around Cadley Causeway and Blackpool Road but the route is open to pedestrians.

Blog Preston has contacted Network Rail for an update but they have yet to respond.
