2nd December 2014 - Press Release

Dover determined to keep UK plc running this Winter



No matter what the weather throws at Dover, the Port has gained an enviable reputation for keeping going when other forms of transport find it a hard slog. Whether it turns out to be a white, wet or windy winter, the Port's dedicated staff will be working around the clock to ensure it's business as usual for customers at Europe's busiest ferry port.

What’s more, the Port of Dover team has been helping the whole Port community gear up for winter with a Winter Driving and Road Safety Day. Working with the Kent County Council Road Safety Team to explain about driving on Kent’s roads, general winter driving (driving plans, spotting hazards, space and time), participants have also had the opportunity to try a driving simulator with wet/winter scenarios, alcohol impairment glasses and a vision screening machine. Port of Dover’s Engineering Services team provided a vehicle drop in workshop for winter vehicle checks (giving advice on fluid checks and wear and tear on tyres for example) 

Tim Waggott, Chief Executive, Port of Dover, said:

“All staff at the Port of Dover are determined to ensure that it remains both operational and safe during any adverse winter weather. Traffic passing through the Port can be travelling all over the UK and Europe and we therefore take the opportunity to extend our commitment to putting road safety at the heart of our operations in promoting road safety more widely.”
