Public Footpath number 381 (Lingfield) and Public Footpath 381 (Dormansland)
Temporary Prohibition of Traffic Order 2011
The Surrey County Council Public Footpath No. 381 (Lingfield) & Public Footpath 381 (Dormansland) Temporary Prohibition of Traffic Order 2011 was made due to the likelihood of danger to the public. The Order came into operation on 8 July 2011. It was due to expire on 25 November 2011 but was continued in force by the Secretary of State for Transport until 25 January 2011. It has since been extended on eighteen further occasions and will now expire on 8 December 2023. The Order as continued prohibits all traffic on foot or by any other means from entering or proceeding in those lengths of:
- Public Footpath 381 (Lingfield) which extends from a point 87 metres east of its junction with Station Road (Grid Ref: TQ 3946 4367) in a easterly direction to its junction with Public Footpath 381 (Dormansland); and
- Public Footpath 381 (Dormansland) which extends from its junction with Public Footpath 381 (Lingfield) in an easterly direction for a distance of 11 metres.
The temporary closure will only be in operation when appropriate road traffic signs are displayed on site by the County Council or an authorised person acting on its behalf.
The alternative route for traffic from the western end of the closure will be: Proceed in a northerly direction along the permissive path which runs roughly parallel with the railway line. At Lingfield train station, turn right through the gate adjacent to the booking office and proceed in an easterly direction onto the station platform. Continue in an easterly direction over the footbridge which crosses the railway line. Once over the bridge proceed in a southerly direction along the eastern platform to the eastern point of closure.
The alternative route for traffic from the eastern end of the closure will be the reverse of the route described above.
