M27 motorway due to re-open eastbound at 6am says Highways Agency

The Highways Agency has posted the following update on their website about the repair work to the M27 near Whiteley following this morning's accident.

The M27 in Hampshire is closed eastbound between junctions Junction 8 and Junction 9 for emergency roadworks following a serious incident earlier today. The closure will remain in place overnight to enable us to carry out emergency carriageway repairs to 110 meters of road damaged by the incident. The road is expected to be open by 06:00 tomorrow morning (Friday 27 March).

All eastbound traffic is advised to leave the M27 at J8 and follow the hollow circle symbol. Take the A3024 southbound to Windover Roundabout. Then take the A27 eastbound through Park Gate. At Segensworth Roundabout take the A27 northbound to rejoin the M27 at J9.
