Drivers are being warned to plan ahead if they are intending on using the motorway over the coming weekend.

It will be closed between eastbound Junction 9, for Whiteley, and Junction 11 for Fareham for deep reconstruction of the carriageway which has been rescheduled from earlier this month after bad weather caused works to be cancelled.
