b) the coast-bound carriageway of the M3 between a point 220 metres north of the centreline of Shepherds Lane overbridge and a point 60 metres north of the centreline of Poles Lane underbridge.

The works will occur in two phases, northbound 5th December 2019 to 17th January 2020, and southbound 20th January to 14th February 2020.
