SURREY COUNTY COUNCI LPROPOSES TO MAKE the above mentioned Temporary Order, pursuant to Sections 16A and 16B of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 (“the Act”) the effect of which will be to (i) Prohibit all vehicles from entering or proceeding along the lengths of roads specified in the Schedule to this Notice or any parts thereof. Such restriction shall also apply in relation to the riding, leading or driving of horses or any other animals; (ii) Impose a one-way driving restriction in the entire length of Chapel Road, Smallfield, so that all vehicles shall proceed in a southerly direction; (iii) Prohibit vehicles from stopping or remaining at rest in that length of Wheelers Lane, Smallfield, as extends from its junction with Redehall Road westwards for a distance of 120m. The Order will come into effect on 16 June 2019, for a period of one day, but will only be operative while the relevant traffic signs are displayed.

The Order is required to facilitate the holding of an on-road cycling event, namely the British Heart Foundation London to Brighton Bike Ride 2019. The Order will not apply to such pedal cycles or other vehicles being used in connection with the said event, or anything done on the direction,or with the permission, of a police constable in uniform or a traffic marshal, or any sign placed by Surrey Police. Emergency access will be maintained for the police, fire brigade and ambulance services and for organisations responsible for dealing with the loss of supplies of gas, electricity, water or electronic communications, to premises in the area and for the removal of any obstruction to traffic. No exemption will apply for disabled persons’ vehicles and all parking places in the lengths of roads specified in this Notice will be suspended. The restriction on stopping specified in paragraph (iii) above shall also not apply to any vehicle required to stop by law or in order to prevent an accident, or a local bus to allow a person to board or alight from the vehicle at a designated bus stop, or for the purpose of opening/closing any gate or barrier at the entrance to premises to which the vehicle requires access. Access for residents will be maintained where possible, however the Council are satisfied that, in order to avoid danger to persons or other traffic using the road to which this Order relates, or for preventing the likelihood of any such danger arising, or for facilitating the passage of vehicular traffic on the road, vehicular access to premises situated in the roads specified in the Schedule to this Notice, or accessible only therefrom, may be restricted, save for emergency access as indicated above. Access for pedestrians will be unaffected. It is anticipated that the closures will operate in the Borough of Reigate and Banstead between 6am and 2pm and in the District of Tandridge between 7am and 3pm, though roads will re-open earlier if it is safe to do so.The Council are also satisfied, in accordance with subsection (3) of Section 16A of the Act, that the event to which the Order relates cannot be held otherwise than on a road. Such is the length of the route and the nature of the closure, the Council does not consider it practical to recommend alternative routes for traffic, however, it will be possible to cross the route via Outwood Lane (Woodmansterne), A23 London Road South (Merstham) and A25 High Street/Bletchingley Road (Nutfield), though these crossing points will be controlled by traffic signals. A copy of the proposed Order, together with a plan showing the event route, may be inspected free of charge at:- (1) Banstead Library, The Horseshoe, Bolters Lane, Banstead, Surrey SM7 2AW; (2) Merstham Library, Weldon Way, Merstham, Surrey, RH1 3QB; and at(3) Horley Library, Victoria Road, Horley, Surrey, RH6 7AG; during normal opening hours.
