M27 Road Closure Southampton area January 2020

For any one on an extended Christmas tour returning to London from the deep South , or those heading off late for a winter break , take note.

A diversion route of up to 55 miles will be in place again for the final closure of a motorway in Hampshire while an old bridge is knocked down. The M27 will shut on 31st January at 22:00 GMT between junctions three, for the M271, and four, for the M3. It is not due to reopen until 05:00 on 3rd February.

The bridge is just South of the Rownhams service area , so effectively closing the M27 Motorway from J 3 for any one travelling West ( then North to London) or from the M3 South / West to the Docks etc. ( M27 junction 4)
