Extremely dangerous road condition due to obscure road markings eastbound just after Junction 5 on M27 Eastleigh Airport area. Current markings are overlaid with old marks. It is unclear where your lane is sunlight / rain / dark - means that fast traffic is veering off lane and braking / in danger of collision. It might be an idea to use the smart motorway signeage to control the speed of the traffic until it can be remedied.

Thank you for your report concerning road markings on the M27.
We currently have plans to completely resurface the stretch of motorway between junctions 5 and 7, including repainting markings. This scheme will add a thick layer of asphalt on top of the concrete that’s currently in place there, and it is due to start in Spring 2023, lasting approximately 12-18 months to complete.
