Roadworks in Rawtenstall from Monday 8 April


There are some major roadworks taking place from Monday 8 April in Rawtenstall, which will affect The Witchway and Rosso buses around town.

If you're catching a bus from Rawtenstall, here's what you'll need to do. 

Rosso 7, 8, 11, 12, 13 & 273

These buses will still be able to use the bus station as normal, but will run a slightly different way out of town. You'll still be able to catch these buses at your usual stop.


If you're travelling towards Rochdale, you'll be able to catch your bus as normal. If you're getting a bus heading towards Accrington, you'll need to catch it from the stop beside McDonalds instead.

Irwell Line

Irwell Line 481 & 483 buses going towards Bury will stop opposite the fire station. 

If you're catching the 481 towards Blackburn, you'll need to catch your bus at the stop next to McDonalds. The 483 to Burnley will pick you up at your normal stop. 

The Witchway

Buses heading towards Burnley won't be able to stop at the usual stop in the town centre - instead, they'll continue along St Mary's Way, and will pick you up at the stop beside Asda. If you're travelling towards Manchester, you'll still be able to catch the Witchway from your usual stop.
