Weather problems and ferry shortages – partly caused by issues at P&O – have caused huge tailbacks at the port
Drivers in Dover have described the ‘absolute chaos’ on the roads of Kent this morning (April 2). Weather problems and ferry shortages – partly caused by issues at P&O – have caused huge tailbacks at the Port.
The delays have led to Operation Brock being implemented in a bid to deal with the volume of freight.. It means lorries are held on the M20 but it seems all roads in the surrounded area have been affected by the miles of queues.
Residents and workers in the town have described how it is difficult to move thanks to the parked lorries on residential roads. Outside of town traffic maps confirm tailback reaching to Folkestone, while the A2 has been closed eastbound to hold lorries destined for Channel crossings.
Police are present on the A2 attempting to help direct the flow of traffic. However, ferry-bound passengers in Dover itself have spoken about directing the traffic themselves.
