“The DK TRUCKS PARK opened its gates to haulage companies on 30 March 2015. Located in the Zone Eurofret of Craywick, adjoining the A16 motorway linking England, France and Belgium, it provides parking for 250 vehicles and offers many services: showers, toilets, lounge with television, wifi, bar football, coffee and snack machines, and a launderette. Open 24/7, the site is protected at all times by security guards plus 40 digital video cameras to ensure the safety and security of users and goods. 800,000 trucks use the Channel terminal road every year, many of them from Eastern Europe, and these drivers often go for several weeks without returning to their homes. We felt it was essential to offer them a place where they could rest knowing that their freight was secure. We financed the whole project which cost 2.5 million Euros, and its great success proves that it met a real need”.
