    Burnley to Rawtenstall & Manchester

    Deansgate Closure, Manchester

    From Saturday 16 May for the foreseeable future part of Deansgate will be closed. While this closure is in place, the Witchway and Red Express are not able to reach the normal stop on Deansgate. If this is your usual stop we'll be using the St Mary's Gate stop on Deansgate (near Harvey Nichols) instead. We're sorry for any inconvenience this might cause.

    Closure of Deansgate affecting stops

    Red Express and Witchway are no longer able to pick customers up on Deansgate, Following the recent closure of part of Deansgate by Manchester City Council we have had to use a diversion via Blackfrairs Street. Unfortunately Salford City Council are now making Blackfrairs Street one way which stops us using Deansgate for journeys to Accrington or Burnley. The nearest bus stop is now outside Trinity Church on Chapel Street. Buses will still be able to drop you on Deansgate when travelling into Manchester. We are very sorry for this further disruption which is completely outside our control

    Roadworks on Manchester Road in Burnley affecting some Witchway stops

    🚧 Due to unplanned roadworks on Manchester Road in Burnley we are unable to reach our stops between Summit and the rail station on #Witchway. This is only for trips heading into Burnley between 9am and 6pm. For trips leaving Burnley we can still serve all stops as normal. ℹ️Your nearest alternative stop will be Rossendale Road. We're sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
