• A truck detergent salesman who learnt of a notorious lack of truckstops while selling to hauliers has been given planning permission to open his own at a cost of £3m.
Duncan Moore expects to open Cleveland Truckstop, a two-acre site, off the A66 in Middlesbrough, Cleveland by the end of the year.
The site, at the Clay Lane turnoff at South Bank, will have room to park 100 trucks overnight and for 45 drivers in the restaurant. Fuel bunkering and reefer plug-in points will be available.
Drivers will have to wait until the middle of 1994 for tanker and truck cleaning equipment and at least 1996 for a 50-bedroom motel.
