Our teams are working on the smart motorway to reduce congestion on the M27.
Our people are working on drainage and upgrading the hard shoulder to a live running lane. We are currently working mainly between junctions 4 and 8. Later we will work on the overhead gantry upgrades for the traffic control information.
Our labour manager James Andrews is working in partnership with Danny Sullivan Group and Reliable Group to ensure that the joint venture has access to quality skilled trades and labour. This collaborative working is a model which we were involved in creating on the ground-breaking A14 Cambridge to Huntingdon improvement scheme.
About the M27 upgrade
The M27 links Southampton and Portsmouth, connecting at junction 4 with routes to Winchester and Basingstoke. During peak hours there is considerable congestion because of the volume of traffic.
The smart motorway upgrade scheme will create a four-lane dual carriageway between junctions 4 and 11. The project aims to reduce congestion and improve journey times by turning the hard shoulder into a permanent running lane.
