Public Bridleway number 38 (Leatherhead)
Temporary Prohibition of Traffic Order 2023
On 8 June 2023 Surrey County Council will make a temporary order to prohibit all traffic on foot or any other means from entering or proceeding along the section of Public Bridleway number: 38 (Leatherhead) at Ashtead Common, from a point approximately 280 metres north-west of the junction with Craddocks Avenue, Ashtead in a north-westerly direction across the railway line, to the junction with Public Footpaths Nos 35 and 36 (Grid reference: 518990, 159562).
The Order is necessary on the grounds of public safety, due to works to the railway crossing taking place on or near the bridleway. It will be in operation from Friday 16 June until Thursday 29 June 2023, or until completion of the works, if earlier, and while the relevant notices are displayed. The Secretary of State for Transport can extend that period if required.
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. Access to properties will not be affected.
The alternative route for pedestrians from the southern end of the closure will be to proceed in a southerly direction to the junction with Craddocks Avenue. Turn right onto Craddocks Avenue and proceed in a westerly direction to the junction with Newton Wood Road. Turn right onto Newton Wood Road and proceed in a north-westerly, then westerly direction to the junction with Public Footpath No.36. Turn right onto Public Footpath number 36 and proceed in a northerly direction, crossing the railway line and then proceed in an easterly direction to reach the northern end of the closure. The alternative route for pedestrians from the northern end of the closure will be the reverse of the above.
There is no alternative route for horse riders and cyclists.
The 'Surrey County Council Public Bridleway No. 38 (Leatherhead) Temporary Prohibition of Traffic Order 2023' will be made by Surrey County Council under Section 14 (1) of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984
