The footpath is currently closed to the public for several months due to the groundworks associated with constructing the new junction.

The BSDFA will be responding to the Order and will be raising several issues regarding the proposed diversion including a request for details regarding proposals for a safe crossing across the new estate road and a timescale for the work to be completed and the diverted footpath reopened to the public.
