12th December 2016 - Press Release

Port Of Dover Christmas Traffic

Travel advice for the Christmas getaway

Around half a million passengers in cars and coaches are expected to pass through the Port of Dover during the Christmas holiday period this year.

In excess of 57,000 freight vehicles will also be using Europe’s busiest ferry terminal to stock British shops with seasonal merchandise and export UK-manufactured goods to the Continent in the run-up to Christmas.

The Port anticipates that the busiest periods will be the weekend of December 16 to 18, and the Wednesday, Thursday and Friday before Christmas Day.

During the holiday period, the M20/A20 and M2/A2 approaches to Dover will be busy.

The Port of Dover, Highways England, Kent Police, and Kent County Council are advising local road users to consider alternative routes such as the B2011, A256 or A258 during busy times, which may not be suitable for HGVs.

Ferry customers should monitor twitter for live travel updates - @PoD_travelnews @POferriesupdate @DFDSUKUpdates @HighwaysSEAST @kentpoliceroads @KentHighways
