New truck parking opens near border – Truck News


WINDSOR, Ont. – A new parking lot for trucks and
trailers has opened close to the Ambassador Bridge in Amherstburg, Ont.

Phase 1 of Townline Parking is complete with spaces
for up to 40 vehicles, said company owner Joel Bezaire.

He said the property has been approved by the Town of
Amherstburg and County of Essex as a truck terminal. 

The site is in an area designated as heavy industrial zone.

“We have received great support from the Town of
Amherstburg and the Windsor Essex-County Economic Development Corp. (WEEDC) to
pursue this venture as it aligns with their vision,” he said.

He said fleets had expressed interest in securing
space at the site for their drivers so that they will be able to log their
sleeper berth time.

“Since the introduction of electronic logs, many
drivers are finding it harder to find spaces,” Bezaire said.

“We just don’t have time anymore to be moving trucks
around because everything gets marked up in the logbook. Time is money.”

Spaces start at $125/month.

Townline Parking has approval to build up to 200 spots, Bezaire said.

“It is part of a bigger piece of property. The ultimate dream would be to turn it into a truck mall.”
