Preston Maudlands

Is this the shortest lived station in BR history to be used by a scheduled service? Preston Maudlands was located between Blackpool and Preston and, according to the RVJ Butt directory, opened on 9 March 1991 and closed on 11 March 1991... with a note stating Temporary station during bridge rebuilding. The station, with a shuttle-bus waiting outside, is seen here looking east towards Preston on 11 March 1991, the last day of passenger services!
