A NEW £4.4M truck stop and lorry park has been handed over to Exelby Services on the A1M.

The new facility at Coneygarth provides parking for up to 80 lorries and replaces their former Londonderry Garage which was previously on the site. As well as re-fuelling facilities for HGVs and LGVs it also has a Costa Coffee, a Subway sandwich bar, mini-market, and showers and wash-room for drivers who choose to use the overnight parking facility.

Clugston Construction, the regional construction and civil engineering company which has offices in Leeds and Hebburn, built the facility and the first fuel delivery was by Clugston Distribution, it’s sister company.
