The following text is an informative extract supplied by the owners.
Given the appalling lack of decent facilities for truck drivers in the UK and the recent closure of a number of established sites throughout the country, it is welcome new to hear of the opening of a new truck stop offering both secure parking and a full range of services. (webmaster comment: I agree.)
This new venture is based on the old Gossington Truck Stop, which closed some years ago It is situated on the A38 midway between Gloucester and Bristol. It can be accessed via junction 13 or 14 off the M5 and as the old A38 runs parallel to the motorway. It is a welcome change from motorway driving, without getting held up by traffic.
The premises have been completely revamped; the new owners have made a substantial investment and now offer extensive facilities for both daytime and overnight customers.
An all new kitchen and dining room have been built, offering a wide range of freshly cooked food, including daily specials, meals and snacks are available from 5.30 am through to 8.30 pm. A fully licensed luxury bar gives overnighters the chance to relax and is open to 11 pm, digital TV is offered in both bar and restaurant and movies will be shown on selected evenings as well as live entertainment.
New toilets/washrooms have been built and are open 24 hours; both male and female showers are available for a small charge during opening hours.
Other facilities include a general shop, cash machine and two hours free daytime parking; meal vouchers are included in the overnight parking charge. The new owners are keen to offer the best possible range of services for drivers and encourage regular customers; a loyalty card will be issued to all regular visitors offering discounts on their next visit.
There is secure off-street parking for 50 HGV’s, with barrier controlled access, security fencing, CCTV and regular patrols, which has to be most welcome for drivers with high value loads, considering the high level of theft from trucks parked in lay-bys and motorway service areas.
Older drivers will remember the location from the past, after all the A38 used to be the main road before the motorway was built and the Truck stop is ideally sited for traffic heading too and from the West Country.
Hopefully drivers will find it a worthwhile diversion from the tedium of motorway driving and overpriced service areas that do very little for LGV drivers.
It is always good news to have a new operation opened for the professional driver, especially one that is looking to be here long term. HGV drivers, WVM (white van man (& lady)) and travellers, technicians and other discerning members of the public are always looking for quality stops,, lets give this operation all the support possible. Thank you for supplying services for the professional drivers and others who appreciate it, Thank You!
