July 22, 2010

The site to house a $50 million truck stop the NSW region of Tarcutta has gone on sale.

The 28 hectare site sits both sides of the Hume Highway. Once developed, the site is expected to provide parking for 397 vehicles.

The development land on the north western side of the highway provides 3ha on and off ramps to a bridge across the road, with 25ha devoted to the facility.

As well as vehicle parking, the development plans include a 24-hour service station, food court, commercial fast-food outlet, overnight driver accommodation and change rooms, a vehicle service centre, truck wash and amenities block.

Tenders for the property will close on August 13.

"The size and scope of this development will certainly make it the largest of its kind in Australia, and has the scope to become one of the leading truck-stop facilities in the world," Pat Burke from Colliers International says.

"The township of Tarcutta has been long recognised by the transport industry as the mid-way point between Sydney and Melbourne."

Burke is expecting the site to appeal to major developers, transport and logistics companies and construction groups and says the facility will be a one-stop solution for the trucking industry.
