The closures, which will be in place from April 3 to 6, are set to affect a number of routes.

The Boldermere and Pond car parks will be closed and there will be a closure on Old Lane up to the junction of Ockham Lane and Elm Lane, with access restricted to residents.

The road closures will be enforced between 8am and 6pm.

Surrey Police will be on hand to support road safety, enforce road closures and parking restrictions.

Guildford Neighbourhood Sergeant Sam Barwood said: “The aim of alerting drivers to the traffic management scheme is to ensure the safety of those using the A3, its slip roads on to the M25 and to keep traffic flowing.

“Weekends often see a build-up of congestion around routes leading to local open air attractions and by planning in advance I hope motorists can make plans to prevent delays and associated frustrations.”
