The tram service was suspended in Blackpool, commencing on Sunday 14th February, to enable essential track maintenance to take place. On Monday 15th February ballast laying was taking place at Rossall. A Thwaites TD12 Ballast Distributor, from Shovlin Plant Hire of Manchester, was being used to spread new ballast along the open sleeper track, between the Rossall Beach and Rossall School tram stops.
