Design and Build project for a new parking facility for 170 articulated lorries. The site is located on Parc Cybi industrial park on the outskirts of Holyhead, close to the Irish Ferry port, and provides a break point and stop over for lorries using the Ferries.
The works included all site levelling and grading, archaeological mitigation works, drainage, foundation and base materials with a surface wearing course of some 1million paving blocks – providing 20,000m2 of paved lorry parking. New access points to the site were also constructed, along with perimeter kerbing footways and landscaping.
Jones Bros carried out all ground works for the Conygar/Road King joint venture, and procured compliant materials worth more than £750,000 from businesses based on the island.
Local suppliers to the project, included: Mona Precast, based in Gaerwen, which supplied paving materials. Hogan Group, which won the contract for dry aggregates, and Hanson, based in Gwalchmai, supplied the concrete.
On top of the £750,000 investment in local materials, Jones Bros also sourced a further £500,000 worth of materials from within 30 miles of the truck stop site, on the Parc Cybi business park.
The truck stop is open 24 hours a day 7 days a week, and it created over 35 permanent jobs.
