M27 Junction 12

Travelling eastwards (away from the camera), the first slip-road takes traffic to the northern Portsmouth suburbs of Paulsgrove and Cosham, while the second slip-road (visible beyond the bridge) gives motorists the choice of turning south on the M275 towards Portsmouth city, or continuing along the coast towards Chichester and Brighton.

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.

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?
