Conygar puts forward Holyhead logistics plan

[ December 10, 2012   //   ]

Conygar Investment Company has submitted plans to Ynys Mon County Council for a 4-acre logistics depot and truck stop at at Parc Cybi near Holyhead, the BBC reported on 4 December. It says the truck stop would ease overnight parking problems and congestion. The Council said the applications were likely to go before members early in the new year.

Chief executive Robert Ware was quoted as saying: “Holyhead is the second busiest ro/ro [roll on, roll off] port in the UK yet has always lacked the support services to the logistics industry which are available at other competing ports. This development will also complement our proposed warehousing and distribution facilities which we are now actively marketing.”

The truck stop will include parking for about 168 trailers, a refuelling point and will form part of a larger transport hub which will comprise management and welfare facilities and servicing support units.
