The Free Press (Corowa) - - FRONT PAGE - BY ROBERT MUIR

Con­struc­tion of a high­way ser­vice sta­tion cen­tre in Hon­our Av­enue close to the Corowa Sa­le­yards to cater for all types of ve­hi­cles, vis­i­tors and lo­cals, is pro­ceed­ing well ac­cord­ing to owner and manag­ing di­rec­tor Travis Barker.

“The pro­gram is on sched­ule. We an­tic­i­pate hand­ing over to the ten­ants (Mo­bil Petroleum) early Au­gust,” he told The Free Press.

“It will be cater­ing for trucks and cars, there will be a pro­fes­sional diner ser­vice, sep­a­rate truck­ers’ lounge - a mod­ern din­ing ser­vice for ev­ery­one. The diner will be op­er­a­tional by a lo­cal food con­nois­seur, tak­ing on ‘the din­ing ex­pe­ri­ence’.

“It’s not only for trav­ellers, but also for lo­cals who might want a snack or a meal.”

Al­bury-based Mr Barker said lo­cal peo­ple will be sought in due course to staff the ser­vice sta­tion com­plex.

“We want to try and pro­duce high qual­ity food for the lo­cals and a good ser­vice to lo­cals and trav­ellers, and we’ll need staff,” he said.

Con­struc­tion of the $3.6 mil­lion pro­ject, lo­cated on a 10,500sqm site, com­menced in Fe­bru­ary with up to 30 work­ers on the site at any time.
