New Portsmouth traffic centre could help deal with road incidents and major events

Have your say

Commuters experienced long delays after a rush-hour crash on the M27 today.

The accident happened on the westbound carriageway at Park Gate, Fareham at 7am.

Just one car was involved and no one was injured but the vehicle blocked the motorway for 15 minutes causing a buildup of traffic on the already busy road.

The car was towed away but by that time the queue of traffic stretched back to Portsmouth.
