Richard Ellis has kindly brought to our attention the closure of Newark Lane, although that advice was unfortunately too late for Chris Jeggo and his group setting off from Send on Wednesday, and who had to take an alternative route.
The closure is due to last 6 months beginning on 6 January 2014, and affects routes which head out from Send or Ripley to Clandon and the Horsleys. The main diversion would be to use the Old Woking – Send route (past the Send New inn) and up to the main roundabout on the old A3.
Depending on where the Newark Lane closure starts and finishes, it may be possible to turn left at the garage on the Send road, along Send Marsh Lane ending at the 7 stars pub on Newark Lane. However, this could be tricky, as it is very narrow in parts and likely to be used by motorists also affected by the closure.
Ride leaders should certainly note this information, as well as members generally who head in this direction.
