Public Footpath 121 (Farnham) Temporary Closure Order 2022


Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984, Section 14(1)
The Surrey County Council
Public Footpath 121 (Farnham)
Temporary Prohibition of Traffic Order 2022

The Surrey County Council Public Footpath No. 121 (Farnham) Temporary Prohibition of Traffic Order 2022 was made by reason of danger to the public due to restoration works being undertaken at Runfold Quarry.

The Order came into operation on 28 February 2022 and was due to expire on 31 August 2023. It has now been continued in force for a second time by the Secretary of State for Transport until 31 August 2024, or completion of the works, whichever is earlier.

The Order as continued will have the effect of prohibiting all traffic on foot or by any other means from entering or proceeding along the length of Footpath No. 121 (Farnham) at Runfold Quarry, approximately 160m south of the junction with Guildford Road (Grid Reference: 486341, 147360), for 500 metres in a south south-westerly direction.

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.

An alternative route around the closure has been provided and is indicated on site.
