Public Footpath 125b (Farnham) Temporary Closure Order 2023


Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984, Section 14(1)
The Surrey County Council
Public Footpath 125b (Farnham)
Temporary Prohibition Of Traffic Order 2023

The Surrey County Council Public Footpath 125b (Farnham) Temporary Prohibition of Traffic Order 2023 was made on the grounds of public safety due to fragile and damaged masonry on the West Bell Tower of St Andrew's Church, and associated repair works taking place on or near the footpath.

The Order came into operation on 20 February 2023 and was due to expire on 20 August 2023. It has now been continued in force by the Secretary of State for Transport until 20 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 Public Footpath 125b (Farnham) at St Andrew's Churchyard between Church Passage/Public Footpath 125 (Grid Ref: 483821, 146706), and a point approximately 30 metres to the west of the junction with Public Footpath 125c.

The alternative route for traffic will be via Public Footpath 125a, Public Footpath 125c and Public Footpath 125.

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.
