Kent County Council Highways & Transportation says it has been implemented due to heavy freight volumes.

This is to prevent port-bound traffic from disrupting the local road network and the A20 through Dover town.

Dover Traffic Access Protocol is regularly put in place to prevent the A20 in the town centre being clogged up if there are too many lorries.

It means all traffic has a 40mph speed limit imposed while it is in place.
