Speed limits and lane closures on M27

m27 bridge

Eastleigh Motorists start the New Year with lane closures and speed restrictions on the M27 that will last for the next two -and-a half years as the Motorway is ‘upgraded’ to a four lane ‘smart motorway’.

There will be lane closures overnight this week – and daytime closure from next Monday – between junctions 4 and 11 including key motorway access points for Eastleigh commuters at Junction 5 (Southampton Airport) and Junction 7 (Hedge End).

While the work is being carried out, lower speed limits will be enforced with cameras that measure average vehicle speed.
