Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

A NORTH WALES haulier is waiting to hear whether his latest bid to build a truckstop in the area will get the go-ahead.

On 14 March, Flintshire County Council’s planning committee was due to debate a revised application from Dai Owen, owner of JD Owen Transport, based in Mold, Clwyd, to build a truckstop on the A55 near Caerwys.

Owen’s proposals include space for 60 HGVs, rest areas, washing and refuelling facilities, and a cafe and storage area.

Owen tells CM: “There is an urgent need for a modern, secure truckstop in north Wales to cater for drivers coming to and from the port of Holyhead. The situation here is scandalous: drivers on the A55 lack even the most basic rest facilities. They are unable to have a wash, shower or go to the toilet. At the moment there are no facilities at all, only lay-bys.”
