$52m Truck Central development opens its doors

DARWIN'S new $52 million, 55 bay, Truck Central development in Berrimah is open and has been given a big thumbs up by truckers.

Marty Noordhof and Brian Lambert are both long haul truckers and after a 4000km drive from Perth to Darwin there is nothing finer than a good feed and a good place to rest up.

Both agree that the BP Truck Stop and fuel station that anchors the new freight hub is a piece of trucker heaven.

"There no place like this," Marty said.
