Rudmore Roundabout is junction 2 of the M275.
It was once the only British motorway junction not on mainland Britain (Tipner Interchange, just to the north has joined it). It is at the bottom of the M275, outside the Continental Ferry Port, for cross-channel ferries to Bilbao, Cherbourg, Caen, Le Havre, Santander, St Helier, St Peter Port and St Malo.
Space was left for a flyover, which was opened on 3 Mar 1988. It is a 140 metre long, three-span flyover with two parallel decks. The cross-section of the outer edge of the flyover is 10 metres longer than the inner edge. It was described as "one of the most complex steel bridges in the country".
The opening of the flyover allowed for a modest extension of the short M275 motorway.

- The Portsmouth City Council (M275 Northbound Motorway Slip Road) Scheme 1996 Confirmation Instrument 1997 - This provides for an access from the local road network onto the northbound "on" sliproad
- The Portsmouth City Council (M275 Northbound Motorway Slip Road) Scheme 1996 Confirmation Instrument 1997 - is this a duplicate of the above? It seems odd that one is 1996 and one is 1997 and both are no. 2683?
