FT Jet Newton Park

Phillips 66 has reopened its Jet Newton Park service station on the outskirts of Darlington in County Durham after a major upgrade of the site.

The five-month project involved new HGV and retail forecourt facilities including new pumps, a larger HGV loading area and the complete range of all Jet branded fuels.

In addition there are ‘at pump’ AdBlue facilities, the latest Jet branding, new shower facilities (men’s and women’s) and a new Spar with food to go to provide all the facilities needed by drivers.

Commenting on the new-look site, service station operator Shelley Atkinson said: “It’s been a journey, but look at what we have. Me and my team take real pride in what we do and the service we provide and we now have a site that ticks every box.

“When our HGV drivers draw in, most of whom we know by name, we know that we now have every facility to help them get back on the road safely. Great food cooked on site, fantastic washing facilities and great value fuel. I couldn’t be more proud.”

The site is open 24-hours a day, and LPG and SFGO are now available on the retail forecourt.

There is also a Spar-branded store offering a range of food-to-go options including Seattles Best Coffee, F’Real Smoothies and Milkshakes, Polar Krush and the Spar Daily Deli.

“Every single part of this refurbishment project has been planned and executed with care and precision,” said Wayne Oakes, district manager at Phillips 66.

“At Jet we are looking to offer our customers the very best experience – today and in the future – and Jet Newton Park is a great example of ‘the very best’. Brilliantly managed by Shelley and her exceptional team, this site is testament to hard-work and vision – and an ongoing company-held ambition to achieve excellence.”
