The Parkes Shire has earmarked land on the west of town for a service centre, the ABC Central West reported on Wednesday.
This is aimed at leveraging the economic potential of a planned road bypass.
The NSW Government is planning a Newell Highway bypass and the local council has bought about 40 hectares of land on the proposed route.
Mayor Ken Keith said businesses, including major fuel distributors, flagged a desire to have highway frontage at a potential service centre.
He said such a facility would capitalise on the passing trade, and link in with the National Logistics Hub and mining developments to the west.
“Those trucks will also need servicing and fuel and the drivers will need to eat, so we’re looking for a service centre, similar to what Yass has on their bypass, where you have your major services all available to the trucking and the traffic as they’re going down the Newell.”
