A temporary contraflow will be put in place on the A55 between junctions 2 to 4 from 28 December 2020 as part of the Welsh Government’s contingency plans to keep disruption to the absolute minimum, while continuing to allow access to the port as well as allowing the local community to move freely.

Ferry operators will require freight customers bound for Ireland to link customs information to their booking and if they arrive without having done so they won’t be able to enter the port.

All HGVs turned away from the port will be directed back to the temporary contraflow at junction 4 on the A55 where they will join the westbound carriageway to either be redirected to other sites off Junction 2 to be stacked while they sort their paperwork, or if there is no space on these sites they will be stacked here as a last resort.   

Discussions are on-going to use Roadking as a stacking site and work is already underway on Plot 9 Parc Cybi so that it can also be used as a stacking site from mid January onwards.
