White lines hard to see

Reported via mobile in the Road surface (NH) category anonymously at 11:09, Sun 5 November 2023

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5175712.

The white lines between KCT 5 and 7 on both directions of the M27 are near on impossible to see when the weather is wet and sunny. There are old lines which show up more than the white lines and it causes cars to drift into a different lane. It is Very very dangerous.

  • I’d like to thank you for bringing this issue to our attention and I apologise confusion these road markings are causing. We really appreciate the information and feedback we receive, and value the perspective you bring as someone who uses our network. I’m pleased to report that we do have plans to address this issue in the coming year. An overlay scheme will be replacing the existing concrete with tarmac to address the driving experience and the difficulty with visibility due to the glare from the sun. For further information I’ve included a link to our webpage where all of our updates can be found our-roads/ south-east/ m27-junction-5-to-7-concrete-overlay/

  • And now even worse! The preparations for resurfacing have started and new reduced temporary lanes marked out. Unfortunately this is going to lead to multiple accidents due to the width of the lanes, particularly the middle lane which my medium sized car only JUST fit in. I can only imagine the horror of two lorries side by side

    Something needs to be done about this immediately before a fatal accident occurs

    These lanes are far too narrow and dangerous
