Australian Transport News - - News | Inside The Industry -

Truck stop leases at Carnar­von, Kar­ratha, Port Hed­land and New­man are now un­der BP con­trol after a deal with West­ern Aus­tralian pri­vate eq­uity firm Acure.

The sites were pre­vi­ously man­aged and leased by Out­back Travel Cen­tres Pty Ltd, which went into vol­un­tary ad­min­is­tra­tion in June.

Ac­cord­ing to Acure MD Angelo Del Bor­rello, the agree­ment with ex­pe­ri­enced op­er­a­tor BP “en­sures the long-term fu­ture of our fa­cil­i­ties net­work and demon­strates a com­mit­ment to the re­gion and lo­cal em­ploy­ment”.

“Acure is very pleased to have ne­go­ti­ated long-term lease agree­ments for these four prop­er­ties with such a large and ex­pe­ri­enced ten­ant. It is also proud of its suc­cess in keep­ing the doors open,” Del Bor­rello says. Acure says the Kar­ratha, Carnar­von and New­man truck stops of­fer fa­cil­i­ties such as: • B-dou­ble ac­cess and park­ing • High-flow diesel pumps • Healthy, fresh-cooked meals • Truck driv­ers’ lounge • Show­ers and laun­dry fa­cil­i­ties • 24/7 op­er­a­tion.
