They point out that customs delays at Hull port could quickly cause severe congestion, due to the lack of space at the port. Delays at Eurotunnel a couple of years ago quickly resulted in truck queues along many kilometres of motorway. It would take 3 days for a queue along the A63 to reach from the port, through Hull, and beyond Hessle.
