Years ago I remember many times driving up the motorway from England to Scotland stopping at service centres along the way for a coffee and sandwich to perk up the driver, that would be P, never me :) You may wonder why I'm showing a service centre sign here on the Kwinana Freeway heading south.. there is a replica centre on the opposite side of the freeway heading north. As common as these facilities are overseas the BP Baldivis South and North centres are the first here in Perth. A stop to rest and refuel for the many trucks, tankers, tourists etc making the long haul down to the South West region of WA.
No reason for the shot below except that I enjoyed catching two truckies parking their rig and heading into their very own 'trucker's lounge' :) Are these stop, rest and refuel centres quite commonplace on the long haul motorways in your part of the world? Happy Wednesday, take care and stay safe..
