GIBRALTAR QUEUE WATCH: A new twist.
Wednesday was a particularly bad day at the Spanish frontier with delays reaching four hours by the evening.
That’s as long as queues have been since the summer’s string of diplomatic incidents.
For the first time however, there were six lanes of traffic waiting to cross into Spain during the night.
At midnight, and again at 01:00, the estimated queuing time was three hours according to @RGPolice. After the ‘enhanced checks’ finished at 02:30 the waiting cars dispersed almost immediately.
This week the European Commission finally published the letter it sent to the Spanish authorities after the border inspection in September. It emerges that border guards define ‘medium intensity’ checks as thorough searches on eight out of ten vehicles.
