Port of Dover Easter Getaway Statement - 11th April 2022

Over this recent challenging period, which has been further compounded by the Easter getaway, the Port of Dover’s Operations Team has worked round the clock with ferry operators and local partners, including the Kent Resilience Forum, National Highways and Kent Police, to clear freight backlogs and get passengers on their way whilst helping to minimise the impact on the local community and businesses as much as possible.

Working with just half of the usual ferry capacity last week and only two thirds available this past weekend, the Port managed to process over 30,000 passengers each weekend; treble that of the traffic seen in the corresponding period in 2021. Following the challenges of the pandemic, the Port has been pleased to welcome back holidaymakers on a larger scale.

Still operating within these constraints on capacity, Port colleagues continue to work non-stop to minimise disruption and keep traffic flowing across the Channel, with all roads to the Port remaining free-flowing since 0400hrs on Sunday morning (10/04/22).

We are anticipating another busy week for tourist and freight traffic and will continue to work with partners to help keep communities clear and passengers and goods moving.
