Green light for NT truck stop
BP AUSTRALIA has won the right to build and operate a new truck stop within the $25 million Truck Central precinct in the Northern Territory. The new BP Truck Stop will offer access for multiple vehicles, from small vehicles to large triple road trains, high-flow diesel pumps, meals, a truck drivers’ lounge and shower facilities. Truck Central is the first stage of the 70-hectare industrial precinct at the crossroads of the region’s major heavy vehicle transport routes being Tiger Brennan Dr, Berrimah Rd and Wishart Rd. The truck stop will complement the 3.2ha Road Train Assembly Area and Heavy Vehicle Inspection Facility that are being jointly funded by the Australian Government, Northern Territory Government and the LDC.
