Latest Traffic News
All the latest traffic information in France & around the Channel ports
Traffic in France has now returned to quieter levels after the 'vacances' & September is the quietest month on French roads as the French holiday season ends. There are no problem days forecast by Bison Fute for the whole of the month but any traffic problems are dependant on any future Covid19 restrictions that may be introduced by the government.
No major traffic problems are reported around the Channel ports at present except for the N27 between Dieppe & Rouen which is closed just south of Dieppe.
Entry to France is subject to the constantly changing Covid19 situation, please check with French government travel restrictions as well as UK government rules regarding a future return to the UK. The current ferry/ tunnel situation is as below:
Brittany Ferries: Most routes are running apart from Poole/ Cherbourg but capacity will be reduced on vessels to ensure the ability to maintain social distancing on board. They have also recently confirmed that two ferries will be laid up & a third will not resume crossings. This will have the following effects:
Plymouth to Roscoff: From 10/09/20 there will be just 3 crossings / week.
Portsmouth to St Malo: From 7/09/20, one ship will be laid up.
Plymouth to Santander: There will be one return sailing/ week.
Eurotunnel are operating a regular service, check-in at least 45 mins before travel.
DFDS are sailing to normal schedules but have reduced passenger capacity, face masks required on board.
P&O have said that their ferries are still running on the Dover to Calais routes for ‘essential travel and freight services’.
