Cross-Channel delays: small businesses call for alternative to M20 queue system
Federation of Small Businesses says Operation Stack, which sees lorries parked for miles along Kent motorway, is badly disrupting the economy
Small-business leaders have called for an alternative to Operation Stack – the system for letting lorries queue on the M20 in Kent when cross-Channel traffic is disrupted – saying it is hurting the economy.
The Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) appealed to the government as Kent police kept the coastbound M20 closed between junctions 8 and 9 to accommodate lorries delayed by disruption caused by migrants trying to enter the Channel tunnel from France.
