   M3 Junctions 2 - 4a Smart Motorway - 24 Aug to 1 Sep Notifications of Slip Road or Carriageway overnight closures    24 August, 2017

We (Balfour Beatty – working on behalf of Highways England) opened the M3 as a four-lane smart motorway, between junctions 4a and 2 on Friday 30 June 2017.The speed limit was initially manually controlled at 50mph while testing of the smart motorway technology was finalised. This process has now been successfully completed enabling us to operate at the national speed limit.

We have also been undertaking additional planned maintenance work and renewal of a large amount of existing infrastructure in parallel with the smart motorway works, the most extensive maintenance on the M3 since it was first built in 1971, including the full resurfacing of the carriageway, and demolition and reconstruction of Woodlands Lane Bridge at Windlesham.

The works to reconstruct Woodlands Lane Bridge and other minor planned maintenance works will continue on the M3. We will be using overnight lane and carriageway closures to complete the works and expect to open the new Woodlands Lane Bridge by winter 2017/18.
