It used to be a rough ride but now after a long overdue refurbishment it has a brand new smooth road surface ,laid over the last couple of weekends, the level crossing at Ramsbottom is a credit to Bury Council and the East Lancs Railway Archive LinkExternal link

The Bridge Street crossing had been the source of complaints to Ramsbottom councillors and the ELR for many years as the gradually deteriorating condition of the line forced motorists to drive over the lines at a snail's pace to avoid damage to their vehicles.
Ramsbottom councillor Barry Theckston, who is on the ELR board of trustees and gave the refurbishment the go-ahead, described the work as "long overdue". He said: "The crossing is a lot more user-friendly for vehicles. It had been in a bad way for many years due to the timber ducting collapsing and had become more dangerous after being pounded by the increasing traffic."
The spire of SD7916 : St Pauls Church Ramsbottom is visible above the row of shops.
