M271 road surface

I travel the A31 to Bournemouth and that road surface is constantly being improved - over night - great job. Then I travel along the M271, either direction and the road surface in places is ridiculous as riddled with holes.

The whole length needs redoing as not been done in years. Clearly we all hate concrete surfaces and tarmac would be better but cannot see you replacing it; but at least make it smoother.

  • Why is the M271 such a bad road surface along most of it - spending millions on the roundabout by Millbrook. Surely this road surface needs sorting and strengthening for the long term as lots of heavy lorries use this road for the docks

  • No change and yet the A31 has been improved further in June, which is great. The M271 really does need some new investment as it is very broken in places.
