The M271 shifts traffic around the west of Southampton, connecting the motorway to the western suburbs and the A33. It isn't a big job, and yet somehow the M271 gets it all wrong.

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.
