Drivers are experiencing delays of over an hour on the A3 northbound as a road traffic collision has caused tailbacks as far as Waterlooville.

Lane one of the A3M has been blocked by the collision and there is currently a delay of 90 minutes for those travelling northbound from Cowplain.

A broken down HGV prior to Junction 9 on the M3 is also causing delays as the inside lane has become blocked.

Delays of around 40 minutes are currently expected northbound from Junction 14 up to Junction 9 due to the breakdown.

The news comes after workers had just finished clearing a lorry from the road which overturned late last night, causing the southbound carriageway to temporarily close.

All surrounding routes are seeing a lot of extra traffic as drivers try to find a way around the collision.
