Dover could suffer '20-mile permanent traffic jam' after Brexit
Maritime UK warns May logistics chain would be in major trouble if transition deal not agreed urgently
Dover will suffer permanent traffic jams stretching 20 miles out from the port from next March unless Theresa May agrees to the EU’s proposals for a Brexit transition period, the organisation representing the shipping industry and ports has warned.
David Dingle, chairman of Maritime UK, said lorry drivers could be stuck on the main approach roads to Dover for up to two days if there was no deal for a transition.
