Molesey Road Misery – 2 Week Southbound Lane Closure from Barley Mow Roundabout
Molesey Road Misery
2 Week Southbound Lane Closure from Barley Mow Roundabout
Diversions in place as detailed below from April 2nd.
I’m genuinely sorry.
As you’ve hopefully seen in this post about my intentions and vision for The Hersham Hub I have always tried to be positive and share positive news about our community but, alas, yet again i am the bearer of news of dubious positivity…
Surrey County Council Statement:
“SURREY COUNTY COUNCIL PROPOSE TO MAKE the above mentioned Temporary Order under Section 14(1) of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984, the effect of which will be to prohibit vehicles from entering or proceeding in that length of Molesey Road (C152), Hersham that extends from its junction with Hersham By-Pass (A244) to its junction with the access to “Hersham Place Technology Park”.
This Traffic Order is required to enable Forefront Utilities to carry out gas mains diversionary works.
These works are anticipated to be carried out within two weeks of the twelve month period of operation of this Temporary Order that commences on 2nd April 2018. Advanced warning signs will be displayed and the temporary closure will only operate when the relevant traffic signs are displayed. Access for pedestrians, cyclists, equestrians, emergency services, residents and businesses will be maintained at all times.
The diversion route for vehicular traffic will be Molesey Road, Queens Road and Hersham By-Pass.”
It appears that the first section of Molesey Road on the Cinnamon/Full Moon side of the roundabout is to be closed to traffic on the Lidl side only for 2 weeks – initially it looks like from Easter Monday 2nd April onwards and we suspect this is for gas installations for Lidl site, flats etc.
Unfortunately in the images provided some of the signage is upside and difficult to interpret.
My interpretation is it will impact southbound traffic going across The Barley Mow roundabout in the direction towards Waitrose for the stretch of road from the roundabout to the AIR building entrance/exit.
There will be no right turn at the roundabout approaching from the bypass, no access straight ahead coming from Molesey Road past the library and no access turning left coming up from Esher Road.
The closed road section is marked in red below.
I’ve highlighted the singe lane road closure section by the red block, and what I understand the diversion route to be in a lovely dayglow green – I’m not sure what the pink section represents yet, i hope to get information on that soon.
