Work starts on site that will bring McDonald's, Starbucks and lorry park to Sutterton
Work has started on a massive new service station that will create 65 jobs when it opens beside Sutterton roundabout early next year.
The 6.5 acre site beside the A16/A17 will be home to a McDonald's drive-through restaurant, a Starbucks coffee shop, and kiosks.
The complex will also feature a 57-bay lorry park with showers, changing and catering facilities, as well as two filling stations for cars and lorries.
Construction company Lindum Group initially acquired the site in March this year and has worked in partnership with Pro-Petro Ltd and AKV Services Ltd to deliver the Shell Sutterton Truck Port and service facilities.
Lindum development manager Mitul Shah, said: “Lindum is really proud to be developing a service station at the Sutterton roundabout.
"As a major connection between the A16 and A17, it will be a fantastic asset for all motorists to use.
“We are also really pleased to offer lorry drivers a place to rest and facilities for them to use at their convenience.”
Drivers will enter the site from the A17 and exit onto the A16.
James Townsend, property director of Pro-Petro Ltd described the development as "a much needed local facility that will ease the current lack of secure HGV parking and driver facilities.”
Boston Borough Council leader Michael Cooper,said: “Improved facilities for motorists and lorry drivers, given the importance of the haulage industry in this area and to the nation’s food security, will be most welcome. I am always pleased to hear of new jobs being created and congratulate Lindum Group for helping to bring this forward.”
