MOTORISTS faced long delays this morning following two crashes.
A lorry hit the central reservation on the M27 at 7am and caused extensive damage to the barrier.
There were long delays as one lane was closed in both directions between Junction 5 and Junction 7, between Southampton Airport and Hedge End.
Police closed the lanes while the lorry awaited recovery.
Delays of more than an hour are expected.
An accident on the M275 northbound by Tipner Bridge at 7.04am also led to a lane closure and caused delays in Portsmouth.
Police closed the lane until the car was recovered at 8am.
