Why are we going back to a time when dinos walked the earth?
Some hints here

Essentially this portal is in an experimental stage from years and the evacuation is forced due to external causes without the possibility to devote additional time for improvements and test, so you are already lucky that work.

Sorry I don't understand.

Assuming the second scenario may be sufficient carriers but since naturally don't exist roads, the likely wild vegetation around, if the position, despite the efforts, can not be maintained vehicles with limited off-road capabilities would be inefficient or even unusable.

Could be don't sufficient against the bigger and could result on the opposite effect to enrage them instead.
If that happen a bigger size dinosaur might have time to break through the perimeter before dying, and would suffice their mere dead mass that collapses for crush the vehicles behind it.
Considering also the natural better mobility of an animal, respect a vehicle, regardless at their maximum speed, which can also be relatively "small":
50 km/h / 60 minute = 0.833 = 833 meters each 1 minute
you have little time for terminate a dino that run against you.
If it is just a few hundred meters away this is only a matter of few seconds.
