Footpath 103 (Farnham)

The Surrey County Council
Public Footpath 103 (Farnham)
Temporary Prohibition of Traffic Order 2020
Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984, Section 14(1)

On 6 March 2020 Surrey County Council made the above temporary closure order, the effect of which is to prohibit all traffic on foot or by any other means from entering or proceeding along part of Public Footpath 103 (Farnham) from a point 60 metres from Green Lane in an east-south-easterly direction to a point 5 metres from Green Lane. This is shown as a solid red line between point A (Grid Ref: 485741 147661) and point B (Grid Ref: 485793 148648) on the closure plan.

The Order is necessary on the grounds of public safety, to mitigate risk to the public from construction traffic crossing the public footpath while moving between a construction site and site compound. The closure will be in operation from 16 March for 6 months or until completion of the works, if earlier. 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 from point A will be in a southerly, easterly and then northerly direction around the outside of the site compound as shown on the Order plan. The alternative route from point B will be the reverse of the above.

The Surrey County Council Public Footpath 103 (Farnham) Temporary Prohibition of Traffic Order 2020 was made by the County Council under Section 14(1) of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984.
