Roadworks planned in RBWM and on the M3 junctions 2 - 4a

RBWM supply a list of roadworks booked to take place in the borough for each week. This is this weeks list and the list for the M3 is below this:

Unfortunately RBWM has outsourced the highways service and are currently not supplying any highway project information. For the most up to date road information please go to https://roadworks.org/ 


For detailed information regarding bus services in your area please go to:



Many of the works listed above are weather dependent and rely on unhindered access.

We (RBWM) aim to keep any changes to a minimum but dates are subject to change.


Operational activities such as road markings and sign installation have to be flexible and are often arranged at short notice. Therefore they may not appear on this list; however (Council) Members will have been consulted on, and approved the changes prior to these works.

For information
The M3 junction 2 to 4a smart motorway project was scheduled to complete construction in December 2016. However while we are working on this part of the network, Highways England has taken the decision to carry out a substantial amount of planned future maintenance works which includes the full resurfacing of the carriageway and important bridge reconstruction works. Further unforeseen drainage works are also required which will have an effect on the original programme. By undertaking this work while we have the scheme traffic management in place, we will reduce the need for further work to be carried out in this location for a minimum of five years once construction is complete.


Due to the significant increase in works that was not included in the original project scope, it is anticipated that construction will now run to summer 2017.
