Top 50 Indie Sewell on the go has announced it is investing a further 250,000 in its most successful site, Hull West on the A63 Westbound, after a 1m redevelopment was completed at the end of 2012.

Sewell will be developing a bespoke parking area for long-haul lorry drivers.

Work has recently started, with upgrades due to be made to drainage, surfacing and shower and toilet facilities.

Patrick Sewell, managing director of Sewell on the go, said: "We're continuing to listen to our customers and invest to provide better products, facilities and services. This latest development at our Hull West service station will create the only purpose-built lorry park on the East Yorkshire stretch of the A63 Westbound."

Sewell Construction is managing the works on site.

Geoff Smith, project manager, said: "We will be making upgrades to the drainage, installing motorway grade barrier kerbs, resurfacing the area and also making improvements to the washroom facilities. The new drainage system will ensure that rain water goes through a petrol interceptor (that captures and holds any contaminants) and soaks it away into the ground, meaning the park will be free of standing water, whatever the weather."

The lorry park will be closed until the end of February 2015.
