Dont worry.

Access to Putney Embankment is pretty good with wide roads all the way from the M3. The length really wont make that much difference as Buses and trucks use the route regularly. I will look at posting some directions from the top of the M3 to Putney nearer the time.

Your Cheeryokay should manage fine with the slip. My Audi A3 pulls a 6m out from there at an angle no problems and we will have plenty of 4x4s and willing hands around.
