Farewell Romsey Road Bridge

The Romsey Road team are embarking on their final full weekend closure of the M27 junctions 3-4 along with the A3057 to demolish the old east deck of the Romsey Road Bridge, known as bridge 21 when it was built in 1974.

From 10pm on Friday 31st January the M27 will begin its closure process to enable the demolition to take place.

The 2000 tonnes of materials from the old bridge structure will be munched by specialist machines and removed back to the site compound where it will be processed and recycled. With only 55 hours to complete this mammoth task the site will be working 24/7 to ensure that the M27 is back up and running for the Monday morning traffic.

During the main closure and subject to weather conditions the team will also resurface the A3057 to reduce any further disruption to the neighbouring residents as much as practically possible.

This is the third and final full weekend closure, the project team have worked with their stakeholders to reduce the impact, however, motorists should be aware that there will be delays on the highway network and are advise to leave plenty of additional time for their journeys during this period.
