Dear David Drake,
M3 J9 to 14 Smart Motorways Scheme
Highways England is developing proposals to upgrade the M3 from Junction 9 (Winchester / A34 interchange) to Junction 14 (M27 Southampton interchange). The scheme covers approximately 16 km (10 miles) and involves permanently converting the hard shoulder into a live lane to provide additional traffic capacity.
We are currently in the early development stages of the scheme’s preliminary design, while also undertaking the collection of key environmental data. In April 2017, we appointed the Mott MacDonald Sweco joint venture organisation to deliver the design of the scheme. They will be working in partnership with key stakeholders such as yourselves, to discuss the project in detail, and to ensure stakeholders and communities affected by any aspect of the scheme are fully informed and properly engaged.
Further information on the scheme and on smart motorways can be found on the scheme webpage at http://roads.highways.gov.uk/projects/m3-junctions-9-to-14-smart-motorway/
In the meantime, if you require further information then please don’t hesitate to contact the Highways England Customer Care Centre on 0300 123 5000,
