TIP Group expands truck parking

TIP Group has acquired a new secure truck parking facility in Sorigny — its second site in France.

Isoparc is found south of Tours at the intersection of the A10, A85 and A28 highways. It’s a crucial route connecting Paris to Bordeaux and the Iberian Peninsula, with 7,000 trucks passing daily.

TIP’s first facility in the country, Delta Park Secure Truck Parking in Dourges, was recently awarded European Union gold certification and the title of truck parking facility of the year by the European Secure Parking Organisation.

This month, TIP will begin upgrades, expanding parking spaces, enhancing security and building a new facility with various amenities for drivers. The site will remain open throughout the construction, which is scheduled to be completed by March 2025.

The parking site is already operating and has 146 spaces, fully covered with photovoltaic sunshades. There are also hydrogen and LNG fuel stations nearby.

To upgrade the facility, works will include:

  • Extension to 179 spaces.
  • Redesign of parking entry points.
  • Video surveillance and perimeter security upgrades.
  • Construction of a security office, driver lounge, restroom & showers, vending machines, laundry and a fitness area.
