Emergency roadworks between Rishton and Whitebirk


Emergency roadworks have sprung up along Blackburn Road in Rishton to repair a burst water main.

All of the bus stops on Blackburn Road (between Rishton, Station Road and the Whitebirk roundabout) are closed whilst the water main is being fixed. 

If you normally catch your bus in Rishton, the 6&7 will pick up and drop you off at the stops beside the Roebuck Inn. Hotline is unable to stop in Rishton at the moment - buses are running from Whitebirk roundabout non-stop to Dunkenhalgh Way (by the Mercure hotel).

At the moment, we don't know how long the repairs are going to take, but we'll keep you updated as soon as we know. 

Thanks for bearing with us whilst these roadworks are taking place. Follow us on Twitter @blackburnbusco for the latest.
