Cyclists’ Surrey favourite is closed from Monday to Friday for essential road repairs and maintenance Zig Zag Road, Box Hill Credit: Roo Fowler Cyclists intending to head to Box Hill in Surrey this week should be warned: the road will be closed for essential repairs.
Yellow signs were put in place in the past few weeks to warn users of Zig Zag Road leading to and from the top of Box Hill that it would be closed from Monday, January 11 to Friday, January 15.

At least some of the erosion has been caused by extra traffic using the hill while the nearby Pebble Hill road was closed for water main works.
