Most of my updates come from the FB page TRUCK DRIVERS FOOD & SHOWERS AUSTRALIA. . below is a link you can click to leave updates. Also while you are there can you give them a thumbs up. They have put in a big effort!!
THESE GUYS ARE OFFERING A HOT HOME COOKED MEAL TO ALL TRUCKIES FOR FREE UNTIL 8PM TONIGHT!! 24\03
MAJOR BP truck stops and all their sites have increased cleaning of their amenities due to the coronavirus. He was contacting Archerfield after we were advised reports their showers are closed.
Please be patient if cleaning is occurring - this is being done to protect all using the facilities.
UPDATED: Please find below the BP's that will be conducting the complete shower clean, its a shame that not ALL BP's are participating.
Family & Friends
I’ve had the following confirmed by BP Australia today, regarding shower & toilet facilities at BP truck stop network's across Australia.
SHOWERS ARE OPEN – (sadly not all BP's are participating in this regime) - all be it a few new processes have been implements. Keys will not be given out to drivers. All sites (bar 2 in Victoria) will have cleaners installed in them. Once you have proved you are a driver the cleaner will physically open the shower room for you and then lock it. Once you have showered you need to let the cleaner know so they can go in to the shower area to clean and disinfect the space. The following notices will appear at all BP truck stop sites as of today.
I noticed a post about Epping last night – the internal emails regarding the new processes for showers went out after management had left the building, this has and will be rectified.
MEALS – Due to the direction of the Federal and State Governments, no in site dining will apply. All meals will be supplied via take away containers. This in itself will create a few issues, with drivers not being able to get a decent rest away from their trucks. BP are trying to work around this the best they can.
The above is a directive to BP truck stops, I only have the diversions for Victoria, but they have assured me that every State across the Nation has been instructed on the same protocol when it comes to servicing drivers needs while States are in lock down and we work our way through these uncertain times.
