Dover traffic chaos: Disrupted ferry services leave 'all routes to port gridlocked'


The A2 Jubilee Way is closed coast-bound as lorries wait for ferry services, which are severely disrupted. On Friday, traffic also stretched for miles on the M2 and M20, and is currently  affecting bus services.

On Saturday, the A2 Jubilee Way is currently shut between the Whitfield roundabout and the Eastern Docks roundabout, with congestion stretching back to London Road in Dover.

A Department for Transport spokesman said: “We are aware of queues at Dover, and the Kent Resilience Forum and local partners are working to minimise any disruption by deploying temporary traffic-management measures as standard.”

An updater from P&O Ferries on Twitter also said on Saturday: “Services (between Dover and Calais) today remain cancelled. Please arrive as booked, we will get you away on an alternative carrier asap. 

“Once at the port please head to the DFDS (Dover) or P&O (Calais) check in booths. We apologise for the inconvenience this may cause.”

Twitter user @sophielougough said: “Don’t come to Dover all routes in are completely gridlocked.”
