Four kilometre traffic queues at Gibraltar crossing

Road traffic between La Linea de la Concepción and Gibraltar came to a standstill yesterday afternoon with vehicles backed up for four kilometres and scuffles breaking out at various points in the queue.

This is not an infrequent occurrence at what is Spain’s busiest pedestrian crossing point with the problem being blamed on poor infrastructure.

There is only one lane for the traffic and when people start pushing in, as they inevitably will and do, this causes the odd fight to break out. With so many pedestrians crossing into Gibraltar, the Guardia Civil appear to be hard pushed to provide any sort of supervision of the traffic queues.
