Latest updates

Highways England are working with their design partners to develop the detailed design proposals with the aim of starting construction in Summer 2022. The works are planned to follow the completion of the adjacent M27 J4-11 smart motorway scheme which is currently in progress.

Scheme overview

Highways England, in partnership with Hampshire County Council and Southampton City Council, are consulting on a proposed scheme to improve the route into Southampton from the M27 at junction eight via Windhover Roundabout and the A3024 corridor.

The proposed scheme – known as M27 Southampton Junctions – seeks to address current issues and constraints along the corridor to reduce congestion on local roads particularly at pinch points, improve journey times and support more journeys by bus, walking and cycling. This will help reduce congestion on local roads and on the M27 itself between junctions five and eight.
