Looking over the fence to the right of this photo. The other half of the roundabout should be here, and the fence in the distance should be sliproad.

You can easily imagine this as a roundabout interchange.

The traffic light controlled sliproad (with a 50 limit).

Start of 60 mph limit (was 50). Far sign reads 'No hard shoulder for two miles'. There is one, it's just narrow, and by two miles they mean 'on motorway'.

I'd hate to have to read that if I didn't know where I'm going.

Look at how the right hand part of the sign is bigger. This is just the old sign bodged up.

UPDATE! Good news, this sign has been removed!

They still call it the M27 (E)...

Look at how the right hand part of the sign is bigger. This is just the old sign bodged up, hence the VMSs being slightly out of place.

Surely there are better ways of signing this, it seems pretty rubbish.

Look at how the right hand part of the sign is bigger. This is just the old sign bodged up, hence the VMSs being out of place and the sign being pointlessly big.

J12 has to do 50 (is it really possible round that sliproad) whilst we adjust to NSL.

Whilst it's good that some of this stuff didn't get built, it would have been nice if some bits that weren't built had been built.

M27 J12, according to OS

A simplified diagram showing the layout at J12 according to an Ordnance Survey map in 1974. The lack of flyover at the Portsbridge Roundabout and on the M275 split is more likely to be a mapping error, as the motorway was under construction, but what about the rest?

Optimistic Esso map

A scan of south Hampshire from a mid-1980s Esso Motor-Map No.2. If you look carefully you will notice the M27 has a junction 6 and the M275 has a Tipner junction, both of which are unbuilt, although the latter is likely to be built soon. Why didn't they go the whole hog and show Segensworth Services or an extension to the A3(M)? Originally uploaded to Coppermine on Apr 07, 2007 by sotonsteve

This is half the roundabout, and where the road dives off to the left should be the sliproad. The roundabout should go to the right where the leaves are.
