Public Footpath 40 (Brockham)
Temporary Prohibition of Traffic Order 2019
On 8 March 2019 Surrey County Council made the above temporary order to prohibit all traffic from entering or proceeding along the length of Public Footpath 40 (Brockham) for 107 metres as it crosses the River Mole on the Stepping Stones between Grid Refs. 517211 151301 and 517240 151280.
The Order is necessary by reason of danger to the public due to the disrepair of the stepping stones over the River Mole.
The Order will be in operation from 12 March 2019 until 11 September 2019 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 operate while the County Council, or an authorised person acting on its behalf, displays signs prohibiting the said movements. Access to properties will not be affected.
An alternative route from the western end of the closure is available by proceeding along Footpath 40 in a north westerly direction to the rear of the car park then turning and continuing along Footpath 585a in a generally easterly direction to cross the River Mole via a bridge and then turning to continue along Footpath 585a in a southerly direction to join Footpath 40. Turn right to travel along Footpath FP585 in a north westerly direction to the eastern end of the closure.
The alternative route from the eastern end of the closure is the reverse of the above.
The 'Surrey County Council Public Footpath 40 (Brockham) Temporary Prohibition of Traffic Order 2019' was made by the County Council under Section 14(1) & (2) of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984.
