LISTED: Roadworks planned across the south this week

Have your say

MOTORISTS are being warned that a stretch of the M27 will be shut for 32 hours over the weekend.

The motorway will be closed between junction 4, where it joins the M3, and junction 5 at Eastleigh, from 9pm in Saturday until 5.30am on Monday.

Essential works will be taking place to prevent the build-up of surface water after heavy rain.

During the closure, M3 traffic will be diverted off at junction 14 to follow a diversion via the A33, A27 and A335.

M27 traffic will be diverted onto the northbound M3 to junction 12 to follow a diversion via the A335, Woodside Avenue, Passfield Avenue, Chestnut Avenue and Stoneham Lane.

Phil Sheppard, Highways Agency asset manager, said: ‘Safety is top priority for the Highways Agency.

‘We have considered other options but this has proved to be the best, safest and most effective way to do it.’
