Upper Park Road closed “TOMORROW”

Remember this item that we posted in November?

Amongst the obsure notices about local traffic closures, you can find one to:

“Prohibit vehicles from entering or proceeding in that length of Upper Park Road (D3528), Camberley that extends from its junction with Church Hill (D3526) to its junction with Heathcote Road (D3528). Vehicular traffic will be diverted via Heathcote Road (D3528), Upper Gordon Road (D3528) and Upper Park Road (D3528)”

“This Temporary Traffic Order is required to enable highway resurfacing and/or maintenance works on behalf of Surrey County Council. These works are anticipated to be carried out between the hours of 07:00 and 17:00 as soon as possible within the eighteen month period of operation of this Temporary Traffic Order which commences on 17th November 2017.”

In other words, Church Hill, an important access road to the south of the town, will be closed for maintenance at some point before too long Traffic will be diverted via roads that are unlikely to be able to handle it!

According to the County Council Local Committee, the closure will take place TOMORROW (and maybe on another day soon afterwards too).

  1. That’s going to make the school run fun. The person who decided it probably sends their child to a posh school, and thinks they’ve all broken up for Christmas….

    • I’m deliberately quoting the Local Committee rather than making any prediction myself. That way, if the info proves to be wrong, the LC can take the blame, not me!! But I do hope that what IS my prediction – that there’ll be traffic chaos – proves to be wrong.

      • Thought you had an inside contact at the Council who said she would give you the up to date info ….. do people go into Camberley then

  2. I notice that this work still hasn’t been carried out.
    A few weeks ago big yellow signs appeared in Gordon Avenue, announcing that the road would be closed for roadworks on 31 January, a leaflet was delivered to every home asking them not to park, and then nothing happened. Some time during the night of the 30th/31st, the big yellow signs were changed to report that the work has been postponed indefinitely.
    I suppose we’ll just have to keep enjoying our potholes a little longer…
