Highways England calls for views on Operation Stack alternatives

A consultation is underway to find a location for a new lorry parking area as an alternative to Operation Stack.  

It comes after £250 million has been made available in the government’s Autumn Statement to buy space for HGVs to use when Operation Stack would otherwise have come into effect.

The consultation, led by Highways England, runs until 25 January and will seek views on potential sites for truck stops, with Stanford in Hythe currently being the preferred location.
