Dover and other Channel ports face disruption for up to six months if the UK leaves the EU without a deal, ministers have said.

The "worst case scenario" warning comes after analysis of likely traffic flows, if customs checks are delayed.

Despite the wails of "Project Fear"....now reduced to a wimper, UK Gov obviously fear this as when i returned back to Dover in August the M20 was lined with miles of cones. Talking to a couple of British truck drivers on the same ferry they told me the works include building a huge parking area to try and avoid Operation Stack.

Hope they remember to make parking spaces for Brexiters to enjoy their 'holiday'.

Kent voted overwhelmingly Leave in the referendum, 59%.....but now want an "urgent cash injection" of £20 million to help locals around the looming gridlock. Funny but the significance of Dover port was explained at the time so Kent Brexiters should fund their own stupidity. Brexit voting Raab openly admitted he didn't realise the importance of Dover port....and he was Brexit Secretary!

Oh wait a minute....we've got another bloke in now but he suffers memory loss over EU tariffs and dates. I wonder if he knows where Dover is let alone the importance of the port! And then we wonder why the country is going to hell in a hand basket!

Common sense tells us there are about the same number of lorries travelling both ways because those bringing stuff in will return whether fully loaded or not.
And if they have a long wait IF they wait to bring our much needed immports across the channel - who is going to pay for that

But those lorries going back are likely to be empty according to you whingers.......Coz we don't export anything anymore ...........

BTW...... are the ferries going to be travelling backwards and forwards empty? ..........Whilst there's queues of lorries sat on the M20 ? ..........

I expect they mean they'd hope to have the backlog cleared by then.......to make way for the next!

It will bring a whole new definition too "traffic jam"!

Probably yes - because they have to run to a timetable even if the lorries are stuck in customs
Do I have to explain the difference between the capacity of the ferries, and the capacity of customs to process the lorries?
Do I have to explain what happens when the ferries can carry 100 lorries an hour and the customs can only process 40 lorries an hour?

Lets be honest about it, because its pretty obvious Brexiteers like yourself haven't thought it through.
Thats why we need a democratic vote on it when you have.

Looks like this answers my question ................

As it appears that our infrastructure is not keeping up with demand.......so perhaps 6 months of queues will force government to finally sort it ..........

See..... another potential Brexit bonus .........

Are you saying the solution to long customs delays and tariffs is bigger lorry parks?
Very few lorries (if any) make ferry bookings in Dover - they negotiate freight rates in advance to go on the next available ferry at the same price. Just as well as they wont have a clue when they are going to clear customs with their just-in-time deliveries.
Oh and your link says the delay costs the haulage contractor £1 a minute. Brexiteers seem to be under the delusion that lorry delays are someone else's problem - but who do you think pays in the end .

So delusional they probably think they will be exempt from any price increases!

The final question shows how desperate the situation is when you have to invite people to send in ideas for an alternative solution!

Goods vehicles travelling to mainland Europe

Chart 4 (Table RORO0101) shows that the number of goods vehicles
(powered vehicles and unaccompanied trailers) travelling to mainland
Europe from the UK rose by 3 per cent between 2014 and 2015, from 2.9
to 3.0 million. The number of UK-registered vehicles travelling to mainland
Europe fell by 10 per cent (313,000 to 283,000) while the number of foreignregistered
vehicles rose by 4 per cent (1.9 million to 2.0 million).

Oh and your link says the delay costs the haulage contractor £1 a minute. Brexiteers seem to be under the delusion that lorry delays are someone else's problem - but who do you think pays in the end .


Seeing as most of those lorries your bitching about have EU number plates ............

Forgive me if I don't give a toss .........

Are you really so stupid you think those costs apply only to EU plated trucks?


Are you so blind.......that when you go through a port you fail to notice that "British" trucks are as rare as sensible Socialists? .........

Seeing as we import twice what we export that's blindingly obvious......but that wasn't the question i asked you which you've avoided answering.


I answered it .......

Those costs will apply to 200k UK trucks......and 2 million EU trucks .......

Irrespective of where the lorries are registered, If they are transporting goods to or from UK, and the cost of their journey increases through Brexit delays, who do you think the hauliers are going to pass their increased costs on to?
Don't you understand that will make our imports more expensive - so we have to pay more.
And our exports more expensive so we sell less.

He's stuck his head in the sand pretending to "not give a toss" as trucks are EU plated and won't ever give a direct answer to that as it spoils his Brexidream.

I can't believe he ever ran a business.

I think there are many others who don't realise the cost of lorry transport is passed on to them.
When I was in the business British registered lorries had the highest road and fuel tax in Europe - the Government found it a handy stealth tax to tax lorries because voters like him didn't realise they were paying it. So British International Road Haulage was going the same way as Britsh Merchant shipping - taxed and regulated out of business. Those who could registered their lorries abroad like the shipping companies do, or transferred their work to foreign registered lorries with big fuel tanks they filled up across the channel, so the British Exchequer got no tax revenue at all.

The increase cost of what? ..........a custom declaration.......ie a piece of paper .........

BUT.......As you've already admitted most of those 2 million EU trucks will be returning EMPTY .........

So NO declaration required ...........

Looks to me like the longest queues will be in France ..........

Cant see them being happy with that ..........

Do I have to explain why it costs money to have lorries delayed with just-in-time deliveries?
Or who the hauliers pass their costs on to?

You're wrong again, I said part loaded and I did not say most.
Import / Export figures are baed on monetary value - not lorry loads.
Are you proposing some system to separate and fast track the empty ones on the M20?
Are you saying lorries declared empty won't need to be checked?

Whats to stop them sneaking in and out through Ireland with no North/South border?

I guess that cost will depend on how much the EU wants to damage our EU "owned" businesses? ........

So ultimately their businesses ............

Not forgetting the fact that they'll also want to sell us their EU Tat ..........

You still seem unable to grasp the smple basic fact that their increased cost will be passed on to the customer - Us
I give up
