Is it true that hauliers with dangerous goods need to be administered before they enter Kent? Why are they unable to get tests in Kent and refused access there?

Yes, you must take a coronavirus test before you enter Kent if you’re carrying:

explosives
polymerising substances
infectious substances
radioactive substances
goods that are of high consequence for terrorism

This is because these types of loads are not allowed at the sites in Kent. You’ll be refused access if you’re carrying them.

Check with your transport manager or consignor if you’re not sure if your goods fall into any of these categories.
