New facilities coming for truckies in Eastern Creek

Truckies can expect two new and improved truck stops to be up and running in Eastern Creek, Sydney, by the end of 2025.

Ampol said it’s redeveloping both its eastbound and westbound sites on the Western Highway as part of its highway redevelopment strategy.

When completed, Eastern Creek will be one of its “biggest truck-friendly” sites, promised Ampol, with nine pumps available at each new diesel canopy.

“As well as ample parking and truck driver facilities, including showers and a dedicated lounge room,” a spokesperson said.

McDonald’s – which has been on both sides of the motorway since the 1990s – has closed both its locations. Oporto and Red Rooster have also closed in recent weeks.

“Throughout the entire construction, Ampol will continue to serve customers with a fuel and convenience offering at the Ampol Foodary – this includes hot food, fresh sandwiches, snacks, coffee, and the largest range of cold drinks and flavoured milk.”

The redeveloped sites will include a large food court area with both indoor and outdoor dining areas, children’s play areas, truck driver amenities, separated fuel and diesel canopies, and enclosed off-leash dog parks on both sides of the highway.

“From late 2025, the sites on both sides of the highway will bring quick service restaurant offerings together under one roof with Ampol Foodary’s fresh convenience offer to help meet the needs of commuters and local customers on both sides of the highway.”

Ampol said EV drivers will also have new ultra-fast EV charging bays on each side of the highway.

At each site, there will be first-of-a-kind AmpCharge electric vehicle charging hubs for large vehicles, including trucks and cars with trailers, and bays to serve all other passenger vehicles.

Local newspaper, The Western Weekender, said it understands Hungry Jacks will form part of the new food offerings and McDonald’s will not return.
