Jos Richardson & Son has opened a new truck stop just off junction 36 of the M62 at Goole, East Yorkshire.
The new facility has a 60-bay overnight parking space for HGVs complete with security lighting, barrier entry and WiFi.
The seven-lane HGV fuelling station is a one stop shop with a full range of products including bunkering, Shell fuels, AdBlue and gas oil on each island and bunkering transactions can be completed at the pump.
The Truck stop will also take a variety of fuel cards including Euro Shell, UK Fuels and Key Fuels. Drivers will also be able to pay for overnight parking with SNAP Pay.
The development of Glews Services started in February and the truck stop is phase one of a two-part plan to redevelop the site.
The second phase will commence next week when the existing forecourt shop and petrol station will close until next January. This phase of the development includes upgrading the Shell petrol station, with improved access and parking for car drivers; extending the onsite Spar convenience store, which will include a hot food to go offer and Subway with a seating area; and a new shower and toilet block.
Joseph Richardson, managing director of Jos Richardson and Son, said: “This development has been a long time in the planning and was made possible by the building of the roundabout just outside Glews. We are delighted with how it is taking shape and we look forward to completing the second phase of the project on time.
“This is a much needed facility for the area, providing services for local haulage companies as well as national and international freight coming to the ports of Hull and Goole. It will also provide more job opportunities for the people of Goole.”
Graham Andrews, director responsible for the Truck Stop, said: “This is a first class facility for HGV drivers and a convenient refuelling stop for drivers coming to and from Goole, Hull, Leeds, Doncaster and Scunthorpe. There is secure fencing and lighting, clearly defined parking bays, and well lit walk-ways making a safe space. With all the facilities coming in phase two of the development Glews Services will be the Truck Stop of choice in the region.”
