Strikes Affecting Calais Again

Strikes Affecting Calais Again

Only one of the usual four berths are operating in Calais today, and its having to be shared by all three ferry operators!

Strikes action was called from 0600 until 1800 hours on Monday 8th December, resulting in delays in the area. Lorries are stacking on the English and French sides of the channel which is causing road disruption on the approach to both ports.

It had been hoped that the French port would keep open at least a couple of berths during the strike period, but this has not been the case, with only one berth open and that experiencing hold ups due to staffing issues,  combined with the additional seasonal traffic this is not a good day for crossing the channel.

Normal service should resume tomorrow.
