M27 J3 Improvement 15 October 2015
Work to improve the interchange where the M271 meets the M27 at junction 3, as part of the Government "Pinch Point Programme".
This scheme will include widening of the M27 westbound exit sliproad to three lanes, widening of the M271 northbound and southbound approaches to three lanes, and removal of the eastern overbridge hard shoulder to allow three lanes on that side of the roundabout.
The junction will also become fully signalised as a result.
M27 Widening J3-4 31 January 2009
On-line widening of the M27 between junctions 3 and 4 (M271 to M3) to dual-four lane standard. It actually comes with a sister scheme, to add climbing lanes in both directions between J11 and J12, which was started in January 2008 and opened in September of that year.
Information recently released shows that the widening will involve narrowing the central reservation and will not involve the replacement of existing bridges.
