HIGHWAYS ENGLAND - M3 Junctions 6 to 5 Hatch (Hampshire) – Resurfacing

M3 Junctions 6 to 5 Hatch (Hampshire) – Resurfacing

Highways England will shortly be resurfacing a section of the M3 northbound carriageway near Hatch, to ensure the network remains in a safe condition for road users.

As part of the project, they will be trialling the use of recycled materials in the new carriageway surface. They will be using the highest percentage of recycled materials that has been used on any part of their network. A previous project on the M25 used 50% recycled materials. The M3 Hatch project will be using 70% recycled materials in the binder and base course and 50% in the surface course.

The recycled materials are taken from previous resurfacing projects, and have stored and treated at our contractor’s plant near Heathrow. The M3 site will be monitored annually, to see how the recycled materials preform in relations to non-recycled materials. The carbon saving from using recycled materials will provide a foundation piece for Highways England achieving the carbon saving goal.

They will carry out this work from Friday 11 June to Friday 25 June 2021 (Monday to Friday working only).

For the safety of their workforce and customers, the M3 northbound carriageway between junctions 6 and 5 will be closed overnight (between 9pm and 6am), when there are fewer vehicles on the road.

During the closure, a signed diversion will be in place via the A30 and A287.

Please note that these works are subject to change due to weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances. Highways England will advertise the closures on yellow signs placed in advance alongside the road, and on their South-East Twitter page (@HighwaysSEAST)

They would like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience or disruption you may experience during this work.
