Cycle routes and walking trail closures

Updated 9th April 2019

Cycle route closures

Part of the New Copse cycle track from post 308 to 305 is closed, please use an alternative route.

Please be aware heavy Machinery will be using the cycle route from post number 310 to 308 and down to the railway bridge from Monday 21st January until the end of March. This is for essential railway repairs.

For your own safety, and that of the contractors, please obey all warning signage.


Walking trail closures

Old railway line - Route Markers - 195-217 (between Setthorns campsite, Sway and Latchmoor, Brockenhurst).

This bridge is now closed to all traffic, including by foot, horse and bicycles due to safety concerns. Please follow the Green diversion signs. Cyclists are advised to dismount and walk down the decline. Please note this leads onto a shared track which pedestrians may be walking.

The bridge will be replaced soon. Sorry for any inconvenience caused by the closure and diversion.
