30th May 2017 - News Articles

Port of Dover excels during 2017's busiest period to date and continued heightened security.

This Bank Holiday saw one of the Port of Dover's busiest and most successful periods.

Well over 200,000 passengers in almost 40,000 vehicles travelled through the Port between Friday and Monday. Continued heightened security checks were undertaken however minimal delays were incurred as a result. Additional staff were drafted in to provide support to customers whilst they waited to board their ferries and traffic flows were continuously monitored to pre-empt any potential extended delays. 

Tim Waggott, Chief Executive of The Port of Dover said: ““We stand together in delivering business as usual. Alongside our French and UK border colleagues, the security services and our ferry operator partners the team worked diligently to get customers safely through the Port and onward for their journeys as quickly as we were able. Our thanks go to all concerned for their patience and support.”
