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. Location at: ///deny.spend.lines Eastbound just past junction 5 Eastleigh Airport after traffic merges from J5 . Grid reference SU [phone removed]

  • 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. Up-to-date information can be found at the following link as we make it available:
