National Highways England has warned motorists of upcoming weeknights closures to improve junction 10 on the M27.

The improved junction will support 6,000 new homes being built in the area and the new Welboune Garden Village as well as ease congestion on surrounding roads.

A spokesperson for National Highways said: "Drivers are being advised to plan ahead and leave extra time during their journeys due to several weeknight closures starting on Monday (October 23rd).

"The work is taking place between junction 9, Whitely and junction 11, Fareham on the M27.

"National Highways is working closely with Hampshire County Council who are leading on the development of junction 10."

Hampshire County Council says the closures between Junction 9 and 11, are to allow contractors, Volker Fitzpatrick, to clear vegetation near junction 10 of the M27.

Starting next week, vegetation clearance work will take place on the embankment on the eastbound and westbound which will be closed for several weeknights.

  • The M27 eastbound will be fully closed for two consecutive nights between junction 9 and 10 on Monday 23 and Tuesday 24 October 2023 between 9pm and 5:30am.
  • The M27 westbound will be fully closed for three consecutive nights between junction 10 and 11 on Wednesday 25, Thursday 26 October and Friday 27 October 2023 between 9pm and 5:30am.

Motorists and local residents will not be able to use the M27 eastbound and westbound during the closures.

Drivers are advised to leave extra time during their journey and to follow the agreed diversion route via Wickam Road, Wallington Way and the A27.
