This weekend, Highways England will be closing a section of the M27 to replace the bridge which carries the A3057 Romsey Road over motorway. As a result, residents should plan their journeys and expect extra traffic disruption in the area.
UPDATE: The next closure of the M27 J 3-4 will be 28-30 June 2019.
Highways England will be replacing the A3057 Romsey Road bridge over the M27 as the bridge is coming to the final stages of its useful life. The current structure is made up of separate east and west bridges.
The purpose of the first weekend closure was to demolish the west bridge, the second closure will see the new bridge installed, and then the third closure will be for demolition of the eastern half of the old bridge. Highways England has scheduled closures to complete the bridge replacement works; at present work is scheduled on:
The weekend closure of the M27 in June between junctions 3 (M271) to 4 (M3) will not affect the A3057 Romsey Road, which will remain open to vehicles and pedestrian traffic. During the June closure of the M27, the new bridge will be installed.
