A MOTORWAY junction and major Southampton road will be closed this weekend, Highways England have announced today. 

Highways England have said the closure is due to 'essential works' on traffic signals. 

Junction 7 on the M27 in Hedge End will be closed overnight (9pm -6am) from this Sunday to next Friday. 

Diversions will be in place via junction 8 for Bursledon in this time period. 

Highways England today revealed details of the plans.



Highways England contractors will be able to safely escort vehicles out of the car park, but will not be able to provide access to shoppers, staff or deliveries after 9pm. Signed diversions will be in place and heavy goods vehicles will be diverted via junction 8 to access Hedge End.
