The anticipated gas mains work along the lower section of Salt Lane from the Hydestile Crossroads has started and the road at this location is closed to traffic.
Vehicles must use the diversion along Clock Barn Lane to reach Salt Lane at Hydon Heath, close to the National Trust car park, to continue in the Hascombe and Dunsfold direction.
The work, to upgrade gas mains, is likely to take up to three weeks. This website carried an earlier news item alerting villagers and others to the road closure. The official notice is below the photograph.
