It’s hot, it’s holiday time and it’s Surrey Highway’s favourite time of year.
Communication from Surrey County Council regarding the closure of the B2128 between Wonersh and Shamley Green next week and the impact upon bus services and routes.
This is to make you aware of the upcoming closure of Cranleigh Road, Wonersh and the impact it will have on some local bus services in your area.
Due to dangerous trees in urgent need of felling, Cranleigh Road, Wonersh will be closed for 3 days from Wednesday 21st July (09:30 – 16:00 only).
As a result of this closure, the Arriva 53/63 will be on diversion between Shalford and Cranleigh during the above hours only. From Shalford, the bus will divert via Christmas Hill/Kings Road/Wonersh Common to Wonersh, and will not serve stops between Shalford and Bramley on the A281 Horsham Road as usual.
From Wonersh it will then travel along The Street/Station Road towards Bramley, serving all stops as usual, albeit on the opposite side of the road from normal. From Bramley, the service will then travel to Cranleigh via the A281 and Elmbridge Road, through Birtley Green, Grafham and Elmbridge Village. It will pick up its normal line of route from Guildford Road in Cranleigh (near to Cranleigh Common).
This diversion will also apply in reverse for the Arriva 53/63 travelling from Cranleigh to Shalford.
Due to this diversion Shamley Green, Stroud Common and Rowly will not be served between 09:30 and 16:00 from Wednesday 21st July for 3 days. We have instead arranged for a free hourly shuttle bus service to be provided to local residents, operating between Shamley Green (starting at the “Nursery Hill” bus stops) and Cranleigh town centre. Passengers wishing to travel towards Guildford can use this service to get to Cranleigh and catch a bus back towards Guildford (such as the Arriva 53/63 and Compass 24 services).
We are aware that Wednesday 21st July is the last day of term at Glebelands School in Cranleigh. As a result, we have asked that the shuttle bus serves the school (via the bus stops on Parsonage Road) to help children who live in Shamley Green, Stroud Common and Rowly to get back home. We expect to have a copy of the shuttle bus timetable available.
WW: (Go to the Wonersh PC Facebook Page – far easier than navigating the SCC site as there are dozens of road works all over the Waverley borough.)
We will also update the Surrey County Council website once all the details have been finalised.
I hope you find this information helpful.
