Operation Stack Imminent

Port of Calais closed to shipping due to Industrial Action UPDATE @ 11:10hrs OPERATION STACK IMMINENT

Due to the ongoing period of industrial action in France which commenced at 07:00 hrs today, Thursday 24 September, the Port of Calais remains closed to shipping.  Ferry services to and from the Port of Dover are therefore still affected.

Freight traffic heading to France continues to build up and the implementation of Operation Stack (holding freight on the coast-bound carriageway of the M20) is now probable.  The Port of Dover is liaising closely with Kent Police.

The Port of Dover is open and tourist traffic bound for Dover is advised to use the M2/A2 route. 

Customers are advised to contact their chosen ferry operator before travelling and consult the Port of Dover website (www.doverport.co.uk) or Twitter account (@PoD_travelnews) for the latest information.
