The Surrey County Council
Public Footpath 115 (Dorking)
Temporary Prohibition Of Traffic Order 2019
The Surrey County Council Public Footpath 115 (Dorking) Temporary Prohibition of Traffic Order 2019 was made because of the likelihood of danger to the public due to an unsafe staircase leading to the railway crossing. The Order came into operation on 12 August 2019 and was due to expire on 29 February 2020. It has now been continued in force by the Secretary of State for Transport for a fourth time and is now due to expire 30 September 2020, or until the completion of the remedial works if earlier.
Network Rail have advised that the remedial works are provisionally scheduled to take place in late July 2020.
The Order as continued prohibits all traffic on foot or by any other means from entering or proceeding along that length of Public Footpath 115 (Dorking) at the point where it crosses the railway line east of Landbarn Farm, Westcott at Grid Ref: 513883, 149829. 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.
The alternative route from the southern end of the closure will be: Proceed in a south-easterly direction on Footpath 115 to reach the junction with Footpath 602. Turn left onto Footpath 602 and proceed in an easterly direction to reach the junction with Footpath 114.
