BIRMINGHAM is to have a lorry drivers' motel with a guarded lorry park, restaurant and overnight accommodation. The scheme has been approved in principle by the Public Works Committee and plans are being drawn up by Birmingham City architects. The motel would cover more than an acre off King Edward Street, Ladywood.
Also being considered: Another city site of more than an acre at the corner of Dartmouth Street and Ashted Row where lorries could be guarded overnight but without driver accommodation.
Lorry owners who used the parks would be expected to pay a substantial fee.
