M27 smart motorway project update

on Wednesday, 30 May 2018.

Upgrades are taking place on the M27 between junction 4 (M3 interchange) and junction 11 (Fareham) by turning the hard shoulder into a permanent running lane making a dual four lane, smart motorway.

The scheme commences summer 2018 with major works commencing in October 2018. The scheme will be completed 2020/2021.

The aims of this scheme are to:

  • Reduce congestion and smooth the flow of traffic by turning the hard shoulder into a permanent running lane
  • Improve journey time reliability on the strategic road network
  • Support the economy and facilitate economic growth by providing increased capacity on the motorway
  • Continue to deliver a high level of safety performance on the network using Smart Motorway techniques
  • Minimise environmental impacts of the scheme and where possible allow for enhancements to be made to the environment

We are working closely with Highways England and other key partners in the area and will continue to do so as the scheme progresses. For more information go to https://highwaysengland.co.uk/projects/m27-junctions-4-to-11-smart-motorway/
