Junction 29 was the first of three independent truckstops to have been purchased by Onroute; Avon Lodge in Avonmouth and Ulceby in Immingham also form part of the current network and more sites will be added in due course.
Value, quality, service
Mabanaft is on a mission to create a nationwide network of truckstops that offer good value, high quality places for drivers to stop at on their journey. A visit to Junction 29 shows that this site is already benefitting from additional investment. As well as the exterior rebrand, the building interior has been given a make-over, including smart new carpets and upholstery, and a fresh coat of paint on the walls.
Looking after drivers and their vehicles
Onroute Truckstop’s General Manager, David Hatherell, said; ” Drivers rely on the facilities and services of truckstops on a daily basis, we aim to be the leading light in a sector that lags way behind in terms of both service and facilities.
“We are investing in improving facilities – at Junction 29 we have refurbished the building interior and we installed an outdoor TV to allow more drivers to watch the sport over the Summer. We are also improving infrastructure at some of our sites, such as resurfacing the lorry park at Avon Lodge, with more improvements are planned over the coming months.
“We know that drivers appreciate good value and quality food and drink. Our menus include all the usual favourites, as well as some great specials that are updated on a regular basis. We have launched a new Onroute Breakfast which is excellent value for money and seems to be a big hit with drivers. We’ve also installed new coffee machines at all our truckstops so that drivers can enjoy barista coffee made using freshly ground Lavazza coffee beans.
“We have retained staff at all the sites that we have purchased and genuinely value the knowledge and experience of these people. Everything we do is for the welfare of the driver and the safety of their vehicle. We promise a warm welcome, tasty home cooked food and safe, secure parking.
Having a branded network means drivers can visit any Onroute truckstop and be assured the same friendly service, good value and high-quality facilities.”
