M27 Junction 9 Pier Replacement
Part of our ongoing programme of work to maintain England's strategic road network
Where was the project located?
Junction 9 of the M27 is located near Park Gate, approximately 8 miles west of Portsmouth in Hampshire.
Why was the scheme needed?
The bridges were built in the 1970s and routine maintenance showed that the piers were reaching the end of their working life and needed to be replaced.
While replacing the piers, other repairs to the bridges were undertaken, a new concrete safety barrier was installed in the M27 central reserve and a new drainage system was also installed.
This work is intended to maintain the safe standard of the junction and reduce the need for future maintenance.
What work was carried out?
In addition to replacing the east and west bridge piers, a new concrete safety barrier was installed in the M27 central reserve under the junction to improve safety and protect the new piers. A new drainage system was also installed to ensure surface water drains from the carriageways effectively
How did this benefit road users?
This work maintains the safe standard of the junction and will reduce the need for future maintenance and disruption to motorists at this location.
