MOTORISTS face disruption in the coming week due to motorway improvement works.

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.

The M271 from Redbridge to Lordshill is affected, with the northbound carriageway closed today, between 10pm and 6am.

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 to 6am the next morning.

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.

Road users will be diverted via the M3 junction 13.

This comes after the M27 entry slip road westbound at junction seven for Hedge End was closed last night.
