Motorists are facing disruption when part of a busy Hampshire motorway is  closed.

The M27 entry slip road westbound at junction seven for Hedge End will be closed from 10pm this evening to 6am tomorrow morning.

This is to install standard sensors on the road that monitor traffic flow and count traffic and can detect congestion which link to the queue warning signs and speed reduction signs on the motorway.

Road users will be diverted via junction 5.

Further closures are planned for the rest of this week, including on the M271 from Redbridge to Lordshill, also to install the same road sensors.

This means the northbound carriageway will be closed between 10pm and 6am tomorrow <<4 February>>.

Road users will be diverted on the A35, A3057 and Brownhill Way.

Then the M27 junction five westbound entry slip road at Eastleigh will be closed from 10pm on Thursday <<feb 6>> to 6am the next morning for the same sensor installation work.

Road users will be diverted via junction 3.And the eastbound carriageway of the M27 junction four at Chilworth will be closed between the slip roads from 10pm on Saturday <<feb 8>> for the same work to be carried out.

Road users will be diverted via the M3 junction 13.

Fuggin' great, they tried 'ramp metering' to reduce flow down the slip road to 'reasonable' levels so drivers could get upto speed and merge, not that many bothered. So now instead they're going to reduce the main carriageways speed, I'll wager there will be another increase in junction hopping, off at j8 and back onto run the inner 'link' lane to j7, up over j7 to rejoin on this slip road... And it'll only get worse with all the 'new build' around the 'Ends' and Botley... About time they built J6!
