Length of traffic queue from Eurotunnel to Dover UK 2018, by customs check time This statistic presents the estimated length of traffic queues on the M20 and A20 motorways from Eurotunnel to Dover in the United Kingdom, by length of customs check. As of 2018, customs checks take an average of two minutes, leading to peak traffic queues which are almost ten miles long. With Britain set to leave the European Union in March 2019, it is possible that customs checks may take longer, which could create 40 mile long traffic queues in the worst-case scenario.
