This story is over

Work on a new service station, including a McDonald’s drive thru, near Boston will start later this month creating, 65 jobs.

As previously reported, plans for the drive-thru restaurant, filling station and truck stop at the A16/A17 Sutterton Roundabout between Boston and Spalding were unanimously approved by councillors on Boston Borough Council’s planning committee in October 2017.

Proposals submitted by Lindum Group Ltd will see the erection of a 6.5 acre service station off Station Road, with work due to start on Monday, June 18.

The new services will be entered from the A17 and drivers will exit onto the A16, with the project due for completion by early 2019.

The service station will also house a coffee shop and kiosks, and a 57-bay lorry park with showers, changing and catering facilities.

It will also include two filling stations for cars and lorries.

Lindum Development Manager Mitul Shah said: “Lindum is really proud to be developing a service station at the Sutterton roundabout. As a major connection between the A16 and A17, it will be a fantastic asset for all motorists to use.

“We are also really pleased to offer lorry drivers a place to rest and facilities for them to use at their convenience.”

Leader of Boston Borough Council, councillor Michael Cooper, said: “This is an important and busy road junction and, in many ways, marks the gateway to Boston.

“Improved facilities for motorists and lorry drivers, given the importance of the haulage industry in this area and to the nation’s food security, will be most welcome.

“I am always pleased to hear of new jobs being created and congratulate Lindum Group for helping to bring this forward.”

Lindum initially acquired the site in March 2018 and has worked in partnership with Pro-Petro Ltd and AKV Services Ltd to deliver the Shell Sutterton Truck Port and service facilities.
