Hello, Friday 21st May my wife had an appointment at the Benenden hospital in Kent but due to the QE11bridge closure due to high winds she missed her appointment with traffic tail backs for several miles. Needless to say we are not happy as we left our home in plenty of time to cover for problems that may arise. I am aware that measures were put in place to try to reduce the chaotic flow of traffic but these measures were put in place far to late. From Sunday 16th May the weather forecast we’re repeatedly warning of 60 mile an hour winds and rain for Thursday and Friday so why wait until the last day before action was taken surely advanced weather warnings should ring alarm bells? Can someone explain why high sided vehicles are not directed through the tunnels leaving cars and smaller motorised vehicles to continue using the bridge? Dennis Hanna.
