Solution to Operation Stack will be announced ‘within weeks’ says Folkestone and Hythe MP Damian Collins

Long-term solutions to Operation Stack are expected to be proposed in a matter of weeks.

Recommendations are due to be published “in the next few weeks” following a summer of negotiations, Folkestone and Hythe MP Damian Collins said.

It follows more misery for people in Hawkinge and other areas, with HGVs parking in residential areas, causing sleepless nights for residents with drivers arriving late at night, keeping their engines running in the early hours of the morning and blocking the roads.

Hurricane Way is used by lorries, which can park there because there are no restrictions.

Resident Eric Moloney said: “The nursing home further along from me has the trucks using the car park as a turning point, which obviously has an effect on the residents.

“They reverse up, making noise as some have reversing horns on them, with this going on at all hours of the night.

“I’ve been woken up at 3am on a regular basis. Some start their engines at 4am or 5am, running their engines for 20 minutes to build up pressure, which in turn wakes people up.
