Former site of information centre, Eastern Docks
Former site of information centre, Eastern Docks
Seen from underneath the viaduct, that carries the A2 inland from the docks. I had squeezed through a hole in a low concrete fence beside the Saxon Shore Way to obtain this view. According to a local newspaper, the site will be used to provide some freight spaces as it is the intention to do away with Operation Stack. This has been used by Kent Police and the Port of Dover to park lorries on the M20 motorway in Kent when services across the English Channel, such as those from the Channel Tunnel or Port of Dover, are disrupted for example by bad weather or industrial action or by fire or derailments in the tunnel LinkExternal link There are plans to provide 300 freight spaces at the White Cliffs Business Park near Whitfield, 300 spaces at Westenhanger, adjacent to Stop24 and 278 spaces at Ashford International Truck Stop.
