Wallington Interchange is junction 11 of the M27.
This junction forms the main access point for Fareham and Gosport. The acceleration lane on the eastbound onslip has always been very long to allow for the amount of traffic joining and lorries struggling to climb the hill. This was turned into a full climbing lane in 2008.
The eastbound onslip also featured in a Ramp Metering trial around 2000, but the signals were removed as too much traffic was trying to join.
The junction divides Military Lane in to three sections. This road used to run from Wallington to Portsdown Hill, connecting the forts, but Down End Road is now used instead.
A private road runs along the top of the embankment to the north of the junction. This allows Veolia lorries to access the motorway and the local road network from Down End Road without passing through the urban area.
