M27s Romsey Bridge opens ahead of schedule

M27\s Romsey Bridge opens ahead of schedule

M27 reopened 16 hours ahead of schedule

Work to replace the Romsey Road Bridge has been under way this weekend and was due to be completed by 5am on Monday.

It has seen the motorway closed between junctions 3 and 4, resulting in major traffic delays on surrounding roads.

M27 re-opens sixteen hours ahead of schedule

Highways England project manager Andrew Winson said: “We are pleased to say that  the demolition of the western part of the Romsey Road bridge was completed ahead of schedule, so the M27 has opened earlier than expected.

Many said it couldn't be done in the timescale – but Highways England have proved the doubters wrong- by some margin.

We are pleased to say that the demolition of the western part of the Romsey Road bridge was completed ahead of schedule, so the M27 has opened earlier than expected. I would like to thank road users, residents and businesses in the area and along the diversion route for their patience while we carried out this important work.

The project team will now begin building the new bridge deck at the site compound near the M27. The next weekend closure, to install the new bridge deck, will be between 26 – 29 April 2019.
