Motorway closure

Portchester Crematorium

Work set to start this summer on upgrade to Portchester Crematorium

Have your say

DRIVERS are being reminded a section of the M27 near Portsmouth will be closed tonight as the final phase to replace a footbridge gets underway.

The road will be closed in both directions between junction 11 for Fareham and junction 12 for Portsmouth, between 9pm this evening to 9am tomorrow morning.

This is so the new Bude Close footbridge can be lowered into place by crane.

The Highways Agency say a fully-signed diversion will direct traffic between the two junctions using the A27.

Work is expected to be complete by the end of next week.
