CONTINGENCY: New ramp works well
Credit: HM Government of Gibraltar
ALTHOUGH the likelihood of a no deal Brexit appears to be receding, the government is still taking action in order to prepare for a worst eventuality.
For this reason, it has arranged for a ferry from Algeciras to be available to bring goods from Spain once they have passed through a Border Inspection Post which will exist to inspect perishable goods which are destined for Gibraltar but come from a non-EU country.
A test took place to ensure that the new vehicle ramp was good for purpose and that a cab and a 40ft articulated trailer could drive on and off the ferry without difficulty.
Similar arrangements are being made to cover imports from Tangier.
