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 the eastern end of the closure will be to proceed in a south easterly direction along Footpath 8 and then Old Schools Lane to its junction with Chessington Road. Turn right and proceed in a generally south westerly direction along Chessington Road to its junction with Station Avenue. Turn right and proceed in a generally north easterly direction along Station Avenue to its junction with Footpath 8. Turn right and proceed in a south easterly along Footpath to the western end of the closure. The alternative route from the western end of the closure will be the reverse of the one described above.
