Single Line Working on the Tramway

Southbound Flexity 003 using the northbound line as it passes the works at Talbot Square
Due to track welding taking place at Talbot Square this week, the Flexity trams have been operating a single line service between North Pier and Cabin. Although the Blackpool Transport service updates on their website and Twitter feed indicate that it is the southbound track that is being used, on the day of my visit it was the northbound line only that was in use, with the southbound line being blocked by the work at Talbot Square. Notices posted on the southbound platforms also indicate that it is the southbound line only that will be in use, although the opposite proved to be the case, at least on the day of my visit, all rather confusing to the public.
