The Surrey County Council Public Byway Open to Traffic 526 (Capel/Wotton) Temporary Prohibition of Traffic Order 2020 was made in order to protect the Byway from serious damage following surfacing and bank works, and to allow further works to take place.

The Order as continued prohibits any motorised vehicle with 4 or more wheels and any horse drawn vehicle over 1500 millimetres (4 foot 11 inches) in width from entering or proceeding along that length of Wolvens Lane/Public Byway Open to Traffic 526 (Capel/Wotton) from the junction with Sheephouse Lane, Wotton (Grid ref: 512978, 147384), to the junction with Public Byway Open to All Traffic 527 (Coldharbour Common Road) and Abinger Road, Coldharbour.
