Transportation

Location - Highway

Rosetown is situated in the heart of West Central Saskatchewan. Located at the crossroads of Highway 7 and 4, Rosetown is centrally positioned among four major centres - Saskatoon, North Battleford, Swift Current, and Kindersley.


Railway

Canadian National Railway (CN)reached Rosetown in 1910 and a few years later the Canadian Pacific Railway (CP) ran a track just north of town. Both CP and CN still have rail lines crossing through Rosetown. The CP Kerrobert+Rosetown spur, running east to west, is on a three-year plan of abandonment by the CP Railway. The section of the spur to be abandoned is an 82.9 km stretch of railroad from Herschel to Conquest. CN Rosetown Subdivision runs north to south through Rosetown stopping at two grain elevators in Rosetown. The Cargill Elevator holds a capacity of 13,500 tonnes and 41 car spots while the Saskatchewan Wheat Pool has a capacity of 6,570 tons and 12 car spots.
