Brexit’s borders to be built in English villages

In January 2020, the UK had withdrawn from the European Union with a deal called withdrawal agreement. The country is currently serving a transition period that ends on 31st December 2020.

While Britain was a part of the EU’s custom union, all trading goods were transported freely. However, now a custom border must be constructed between UK and the EU. In the Kent county, also known as the Garden of England, there is a state of disruption with bulldozers and trucks blocking areas. Lush green fields have been cleared to create the border. The villagers claim that they had not been given any prior knowledge of the borders being built in the area.

“That was never part of the actual selling and the marketing for Brexit.”

Locals are also worried about the affect of this situation on property prices. “People are quite perplexed at the moment about what it’s going to look like when there’s 1,000 lorries parked across the road,” said Rick Martin, chairman of Sevington parish council.

Although this move has faced much backlash, Brexit supporters claim it’s all part of taking back control. If the EU and UK fail to hammer out a deal before the end of the Transition Period, it may lead to tariffs put on many goods. This may cause additive disruption and expense.

Involvement of the government

Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s conservative government had admitted last month about the worst-case scenarios possible during this time.

“7,000 port-bound trucks in Kent and associated maximum delays of up to two days.”

The government has considered converting parts of highways into parking lots to mitigate the issue. There could also be a temporary traffic management facility in case of border delays.
