Following the announcement yesterday that passenger transport and accompanied freight from the UK will be unable to access France, the advice remains that hauliers must avoid travelling to Kent ports (including Eurotunnel) and other routes to France until further notice. Urgent work continues to resolve the matter.
The Secretary of State for Transport confirmed today that work to put the Operation Brock Moveable Barrier in place will take place overnight, starting at 8pm tonight. The Manston site is also now ready for use should it be required.
Unaccompanied freight will continue to be able to travel to France and inbound freight will still be allowed to come to the UK.
Hauliers seeking alternative paths must ensure they have made the correct arrangement.
