Construction of a highway service station centre in Honour Avenue close to the Corowa Saleyards to cater for all types of vehicles, visitors and locals, is proceeding well according to owner and managing director Travis Barker.
“The program is on schedule. We anticipate handing over to the tenants (Mobil Petroleum) early August,” he told The Free Press.
“It will be catering for trucks and cars, there will be a professional diner service, separate truckers’ lounge - a modern dining service for everyone. The diner will be operational by a local food connoisseur, taking on ‘the dining experience’.
“It’s not only for travellers, but also for locals who might want a snack or a meal.”
Albury-based Mr Barker said local people will be sought in due course to staff the service station complex.
“We want to try and produce high quality food for the locals and a good service to locals and travellers, and we’ll need staff,” he said.
Construction of the $3.6 million project, located on a 10,500sqm site, commenced in February with up to 30 workers on the site at any time.
