Highways England have announced a number of slip road closures that will be in place over the coming days for drainage repairs. 

The work is being carried out in order for the narrow lane installation, as part of the M27’s transformation into a smart motorway, which will require a number of slip road closures. 

The closures will run throughout the week between Junction 4 and Junction 11.

Over the next two-and-a-half years work will see the M27 turned into an ‘all four lanes running’ motorway. 

Smart motorways are designed to ease motorway congestion by allowing cars to drive on the hard shoulder at least some of the time.

Traffic is typically monitored by cameras and ‘active’ speed signs which can vary the limit.
