Network Rail have let us know of planned engineering works on the Down (Portsmouth) line between Epsom and Ashtead on the following dates:-
5th August, 6th August and 7th August
To allow access to the line for their specialist equipment the crossing will be closed to the public as follows:-
2300 Friday 5th August to 0600 Saturday 6th August 2022
2300 Saturday 6th August to 0600 Sunday 7th August 2022
2200 Sunday 7th August to 0500 Monday 8th August 2022
We have requested the Station Car Park to be made available for residents returning home during this closed periods, or for those leaving early to go on holiday or for shift work. This has now been confirmed with GTR/Southern and details will be included within the letter that Network Rail will be sending out in due course. Emergency Services will have full access during these times.
Although 7 months away, some residents might have to make early plans, so this early "heads-up" is much appreciated. Residents in Broadhurst and Newton Wood Road might experience some noise pollution on those evenings, and we have asked Network Rail to let residents know by letter if this is anticipated.
