SES Water implemented the emergency road closures overnight, and they suggest that they could be in place at least until this Friday, April 21. But the utlities company has not ruled out the works, and the road closures, continuing through the weekend.

Last night, they closed Hayes Lane between the junction with Park Road and Kenley Lane.

Traffic is being diverted via Park Road, Hayes Lane, Buxton Lane, Salmons Lane West, Whyteleafe Hill and the A22 Godstone Road. Diversion signage will have symbols to identify the two diversion routes.
