M3 Overview

Spanning a total distance of 59 miles, the M3 Motorway connects Sunbury on Thames (Surrey) to Southampton using a dual three-lane road. Completed in 1995 (after much local protest), the motorway was built to provide relief to the two single roads that carried the traffic to the central south coast from London, which were very congested.

Average speeds are from the Highways Agency network journey time and traffic flow data May 2014.

Spanning a distance of 59 miles in length, the M3 motorway begins at Sunbury on Thames, and ends at Southampton. Building commenced in 1968, and although it faced opposition by locals at Twyford Down, it was opened to public use for vehicles in 1995. Traffic conditions can be congested at peak times in certain areas, in particular around Chandler's Ford in Eastleigh, Hampshire. In fact, records show that this section of the motorway carried an average of around 130,000 vehicles per day in 2008, putting it rather close to the flow of the M25 at 140,000 vehicles.

Also watch out at the junction where the M3 meets the M25, where traffic levels can peak at busy times of the day.

The Government recently announced that a major 'Smart Motorway' scheme would start in August 2014, bringing the installation of CCTV and SPECS cameras between junctions 2-4a - costing in excess of £129m - as well as strengthening of the hard shoulder and further improvements to the entry/exit slip roads along the length of this stretch of road. The new technology will be able to monitor conditions, reduce journey times, and help reduce traffic congestion.


Don't drink and drive

Please don't drink and drive - it's not worth the risk. Alcohol seriously affects your ability to drive safely. You can end up in court, jailed, and fined up to £5,000 plus a 12-month ban from driving and a criminal record.
