THE southbound M275 will be closed in the evenings starting tonight.

Closures can begin from 8.30pm, but won’t happen traffic levels have subsided sufficiently. Traffic will be diverted via Twyford Avenue and Portsbridge roundabout. All lanes will reopen by 5.30am. Roads will be back to normal on Friday night.

The resurfacing work tonight and Tuesday evening is part of ongoing nightwork during October for a combination of the motorway’s new Tipner junction and maintenance.

According to Portsmouth City Council, there has not been much disruption to traffic because of the low levels of traffic using the road at night.
