Sewell develops first lorry park on the A63

Sewell Construction has completed the development of the first purpose built lorry park on the A63 Westbound. The construction of the secure lorry park, with 14 designate bays for HCVs, was carried out for local retailer and sister company, Sewell on the go.

The £250,000 of improvement works come following the successful £1m redevelopment of the service station in 2013. Key modifications to the lorry park included improved drainage, motorway grade barrier kerbs and resurfacing, as well as the installation of shower facilities for those wishing to park up and freshen up.

David Craven Jones, Operations Director of Sewell on the go said: “Since the redevelopment a couple of years ago the Hull West store has been really successful with increased commercial trade; a purpose built lorry park was the obvious final piece of the jigsaw.” “A huge construction challenge was to make sure that there were zero disruptions to the forecourt operations during the works; we also needed to ensure the lorry park remained within the budget. I’m pleased to say both were achieved.”

This latest development is the last of planned works for the A63 service station.
