Great news for the A256 road users. From Sunday 21 March 2021 freight heading for the Port of Dover will not be directed to  the Department for Transport-owned site, which will no longer offer Covid-19 tests or customs checks.  Although this service can be reactivated at short notice if necessary.

All HGVs will instead access the Operation Brock traffic management system between Junctions 8 and 9 on the M20 coastbound carriageway, with one lane being used for Eurotunnel and the other for the Port of Dover. Any HGVs that attempt to take an alternative route outside of Brock risk enforcement action being taken against them.
