“equivalent to halving the level of traffic on the road”

Details from the Highways Agency

Received via MP Steve Brine

  • Resurfacing of the M3 between Junction 9 (Winnall) and Junction 14 (intersection with the M27) is planned to be finished by April 2015.
  • The work will be done by overnight lane closures.
  • The new surface has “noise reducing properties which can provide approximately 3 decibels of sound difference when compared with the existing surfacing. This is equivalent to halving the level of traffic on the road.”
  • There are a few sections which were done in 2009 and don’t need to be done this time.
    Those areas “retain their noise reducing properties and are currently in a safe and serviceable condition” and “their condition will continue to be monitored“.
