Work scheduled to begin on £5m truck stop14th May 2014

Work is set to begin on a £5m transport hub to serve one of Europe’s busiest trade routes.

Jones Bros is due to begin construction work of the Holyhead trucks top on the Parc Cybi development, Anglesey, on behalf of Conygar Investment Company and Road King.

Work on the 10-acre site, which will serve thousands of hauliers that use the A55 to access Holyhead’s port, is due to last until the end of the year.

Jones Bros will undertake all groundworks for the project, which includes around 22,000m2 of hardstanding, as well as section 278 works access points into the site.

Project manager Hefin Lloyd-Davies said: “We’re looking forward to working with Conygar and RoadKing, having worked closely to develop the design and project over the last few months.

“Having previously worked to construct Parc Cybi in 2008, it is positive to see this development happening on site.

“It’s a very significant project for the area, and among the largest hardstanding areas I’ve personally worked on. We’ll have up to around 25 workers on site one the project is in full swing.

“The transport hub will also provide a number of jobs both over the duration of the work and after it’s completed, as well as opportunities for local suppliers to take part in the construction project.”

Founded in the 1950s and employing almost 350 people, Jones Bros has grown rapidly in the last decade.  It is currently working on contracts in various sectors including the construction of waste management facilities, highways, flood and marine defence and renewable energy projects around the UK.
