If your operation is likely to be affected by the potential problems for cross-Channel freight traffic, the Department for Transport would like to hear from you. It has launched a three-week consultation period into proposed legislative amendments for enforcing traffic management plans for outbound heavy commercial vehicles in Kent after the EU transition period. The plans include reactivating and extending the Operation Brock measures used at the end of 2019.

You can view the proposals and have your say until 23 August by visiting www.gov.uk/government/consultations/enforcing-operation-brock-plans-in-2021 .
