Huge steel frames for buildings are going up at the Shell Sutterton Truck Port and service station that will include a McDonald’s drive-thru.

When finished in spring, the site will also have a 57-bay lorry park with showers, changing and catering facilities and a Starbucks coffee shop.

It’s expected the development will create 65 jobs.

Lindum, who acquired the land in March, is working with partners Pro-Petro Ltd and AKV Services Ltd.

Work so far has included digging massive underground bays to house five 60,000-litre fuel tanks.

Lindum development manager Mitul Shah said: “We are pleased to be delivering these new facilities for motorists and lorry drivers on what is one of Lincolnshire’s busiest routes.

“The development is really getting going now and those driving past the site will soon be able to see the buildings begin to take shape.”

Pro-Petro property director James Townsend said: “We are pleased to offer this much needed 24-hour secure truck stop to the South Lincolnshire region.

Some 65 jobs are expected to be created when the development work is completed. (161018-16)

“It has everything a HGV driver needs from showers to a barber shop on site so hopefully it will help with HGV parking in nearby villages and industrial estates.”

AKV Services managing director Puvanasingham Vaseeharan said the project will benefit the local community and motorists.

Boston and Skegness MP Matt Warman, said: “I’m sure that lorry drivers will welcome the chance to stop at a site with great facilities and motorists will equally benefit from a convenient stopping point on a very busy route."
