However, it is also MAN's responsibility to make sure that the infrastructure can handle the predicted flows, which for T3 seems to be a problem at times.
of course this issue is exacerbated by the fact there are three terminals as well as there is less slack at each individual terminal than there is as a whole. People queuing at T3 whilst UKBF staff may well be doing little to nothing in T1 and/or T2.

what MAN most needs is less segregation!
