Road Haulage Association Calls For End To Operation Stack
The RHA has launched a mass petition to restore law as well as order in Calais, to put an end to Operation Stack as well as to stop the misery for hundreds of thousands of holiday makers planning to cross the Channel.
RHA Chief Executive Richard Burnett said: “I am calling for everybody inside country to sign the on-line petition at www.rhaactnow.uk.net as every name added makes our campaign stronger.”
The effects of the current crisis at the Port of Calais are having an intolerable effect on the UK as well as its haulage industry.
For those who have no alternative however to travel through Calais, the threat of violence as well as harassment coming from migrants, intent on reaching the UK can be unacceptable.
On This kind of side of the Channel, Operation Stack has seen in excess of 5000 vehicles parked up, simply waiting to cross to France. The cost to the haulage industry alone can be massive as well as the corresponding problems caused to the people of Kent have become untenable. Businesses are suffering as well as the county has already become gridlocked coming from traffic of which has been diverted coming from the M20. Lives are at risk as healthcare workers are unable to visit the sick as well as many retailers are facing unsustainable losses as a result of failed or late deliveries or stock shortages.
