Large M180 service station offered with drive and parking for trucks


This is what a sprawling new service station on the M180 will look like if plans are approved.

Two drive-thrus, a petrol station, a 200-space truck park and a cafe are offered for the Barnetby Top interchange.

It would be located next to the busy intersection between the M180, A180, A15 and A18 to meet the needs of travelers and lorry drivers.

It promises a big boost in employment with up to 75 full-time positions set to be created, but residents of Barnetby-le-Wold have shared their concerns about the major development on their doorstep.

The draft permit plans were drawn up by the Lindum Group and the Brocklesby Estate.

The site, just south of the interchange, would also include electric vehicle charging stations and short-term trailer parking areas.

In total, it could park 162 cars and 200 trucks.

An access would be created on the A18, vehicles only turning left when they exit.

Two drive-thru restaurants would be built, along with a gas station

The app claims the park will provide much-needed services to trucks traveling to and from ports and businesses on the Humber.

“There are at least three private parking lots for trucks [on the M180] which are regularly full during the peak period. As a result, truck drivers are often left with no choice but to park in parking bays or other inappropriate off-line locations, such as industrial areas, and stop overnight” , he says.

The two drive-thru restaurants – which have yet to be named – are expected to employ up to 25 people.

13 others worked in the gasoline garage workshop, and 23 others in the cafe.

Development has been in the pipeline for several years, with progress stalled due to the Covid pandemic.

A similar, smaller service station is currently located nearby on the same interchange.

However, residents of Barnetby-le-Wold have expressed concern about the major development just outside the village and the traffic it would attract.

A comment left on North Lincolnshire Council’s planning page read: ‘It will be on the edge of a thriving village, we live in the countryside to benefit. What are we going to do to combat the high levels of pollution, automobile, noise and light pollution, which therefore affect health? »

Another said: ‘It is often difficult to get out of the village due to the volume of traffic using the roundabout, and this development would greatly increase that.’

They added: ‘This proposed car exit is dangerous as it is around a bend in the road.

The plans are currently open for public consultation and can be viewed on the council’s planning website.
