Delays at the Port of Dover and Eurotunnel, for example due to severe weather, cause queues of lorries along the M20 (Operation Stack). This has a knock-on effect for roads in Kent and has proved unsatisfactory to residents, local businesses and lorry drivers.

The impact of Operation Stack last Summer continues to be felt by many Businesses across the county and now that funding has been made available, it is essential that Business has a say on how this money is spent.
