Gibraltar and a queue the 2 words go hand in hand and have been very actual the last few days when there were waiting times up to 6hrs. It all originated with Gibraltar dumping cement blocks in the ocean making Spanish fishing impossible at that place making Spain go through every car driving out. Now it has normalised and it depends more on daily flows when people drive in and out of work etc.
How to beat the queue:
1. Walk across and park the car outside. By walking across you avoid waiting if there is any queue. Gibraltar has good means of public transport.
2. Check the live web cams here
3. Avoid peak times that are normally going in morning and driving out evening
