Port of Dover warns of 'regular gridlock' in event of hard Brexit
Port’s head of policy says there will be serious congestion without a suitable trade deal
The port of Dover has warned there will be serious traffic congestion once a week in the town and on surrounding routes unless the government achieves a Brexit deal involving frictionless trade.
Richard Christian, the port’s head of policy, said there would be “regular gridlock” in Kent in the event of a hard Brexit and disruption to freight traffic on ferries and Eurotunnel services would have a profound impact on Britain’s economy.
