Certas Energy, the UK’s leading independent distributor of fuels and lubricants, is expanding its bunker refuelling site network with a new development at Newark Lorry Park. The site is located on the old Great North Road, alongside the busy A46 trunk road and just 3 miles from the A1.
The groundbreaking ceremony, which marked the first official day of construction on the site, was presided over by Keith Girling, Deputy Leader for Newark and Sherwood District Council. Representatives from the Certas Energy team were also in attendance to celebrate the start of the development, which is due to open this summer.
Developed by Certas Energy in partnership with Newark and Sherwood District Council, the new HGV refuelling site will feature four high-speed pumps dispensing diesel fuel, gas oil and AdBlue® at speeds of up to 120 litres per minute. This promises to improve convenience and efficiency for both drivers and businesses.
The refuelling bunker joins a range of existing facilities at Newark Lorry Park, including a cafe serving home-cooked food, as well as toilets, showers and a truck-wash.
Parking facilities at the site have also recently been upgraded to increase capacity, offering over 160 secure spaces for vehicles.
On the groundbreaking, Keith Girling, Deputy Leader for Newark and Sherwood District Council commented: “The Certas Energy HGV refuelling bunker is an invaluable addition to the offering at Newark Lorry Park. We want the site to be somewhere drivers can access all of the facilities they need with speed and convenience, and the introduction of high-speed fuel pumps and cashless payment really improves this.”
Andrew Goodwin, National Bunker Manager for Certas Energy, said: “It is a pleasure to be partnering with Newark Lorry Park to help to deliver a ‘one-stop’ destination for drivers and hauliers. The Newark site is a key part of our wider strategy to extend our bunker site coverage across the UK’s strategic road network. Certas Energy is committed to boosting convenience for drivers all over the country, and our Newark site is another fantastic step towards this. ”
The Newark Lorry Park HGV refuelling facility is the latest in a number of recent Certas Energy bunker site developments. The groundbreaking ceremony follows the official opening of another Certas Energy bunker site at the ‘fechan Truckstop in Ecclefechan, in May.
