Evening diversions on Mainline M4


There are resurfacing works taking place on the road between Laneshawbridge, Cowling and Crosshills every weekday evening from Thursday 18 October - 5 November. 

From 7pm each weekday evening, Mainline M4 will be using a different route between Colne and Crosshills. The road closures mean that we won't be able to stop at any of our usual bus stops between Colne town centre and Fieldhead Drive at Crosshills. 

There'll be some changes to the timetable during the evenings, too. 

If you're travelling between Burnley, Colne and Keighley, you'll need to change buses in Colne town centre. The M4 buses leaving Burnley at 1928 and 2028 will finish at Colne - if you normally catch these buses to go through to Keighley, you'll need to catch the earlier M2 which leave Burnley at 1913 and 2013, and change in Colne for your onward travel to Keighley.

Please note, the connection to Keighley leaves Colne earlier than the usual M4 arrives, so you'll need to travel earlier than usual if you're heading to Keighley.

Buses from Keighley will leave around 15 mins earlier than usual. 

Unfortunately, we won't be able to stop anywhere along the diversion route.
