Preparing for the May Half Term Getaway

With increased Port traffic expected as people travel to get away for the May half-term starting this Friday, Natalie Elphicke went to the Port of Dover to meet with the Port’s Chief Executive Doug Bannister to see the additional preparations being made by the Port to ease the impact of traffic congestion in Dover and the surrounding area.

Additional measures are being taken for coaches to better manage queues, with extra border control booths and planned additional French border staffing. There are arrangements to manage peak periods of coach travel away from Dover’s Eastern docks, and to have a better flow of coach and lorry traffic across Kent roads and into the town.

On Monday, Natalie spoke to BBC South East about the planning and preparations underway at the port.
