Traffic travelling eastbound should leave the M27 at junction 9 and take the third exit at the roundabout onto the A27 towards Fareham. Drivers should continue on the eastbound A27 and re-join the M27 at junction 11.

Congestion is expected, so drivers are advised to plan ahead and leave extra time for their journeys.

All diversions will be fully signed, and closures are subject to change.
