Long queue of waiting traffic on the A20
Long queue of waiting traffic on the A20
This was the result of the TR3140 : Controlled traffic hold-up on the A20. At busy times (in this instance on Good Friday), if the Port of Dover is nearing capacity for check in, its operations staff will initiate new traffic lights on the A20 just outside of Dover to hold freight and/or tourist vehicles whilst space becomes available within the Port to accommodate them. The traffic is then released in batches to match the space available and therefore keep local traffic and Dover moving LinkExternal link
