Dover port expansion to cut congestion

Dover, UK: Dover Harbour Board believes a £6.5m traffic improvement plan will ease congestion caused by Operation Stack on the M20 in Kent. The Board says that part of the scheme will create a new holding area in the Eastern Docks, able to hold 220 outbound trucks.

The board says the improvements should make peak-time journeys through the port quicker and easier once it is finished in 2014.
