In Welsh ferry-ports where there is a lack of investment is likely to result in largescale hold-ups for vehicles crossing from Britain.

Hundreds of trucks crossing from Britain to Ireland every day could face major traffic hold-ups from January 1st due to a failure to prepare Welsh ports for Brexit, a series of experts have claimed.

Politicians, acedemics and hauliers have said that while the Irish Government has invested €30 million into preparing Dublin Port for customs and food safety checks, there has been little sign of investment in Holyhead, Fishguard and Pembroke.

For more on this story the Business Port reports, on the Welsh ferry ports of Holyhead on Anglesea that conects to the Irish capital while the other two ports in Pembrokeshire both link to Rosslare Europort.
