OJ Jones & Son plans to open North Wales ATF

  • 23 January 2013
  • By Ashleigh Wight

North Wales-based haulier OJ Jones Son is awaiting permission to open a new site with an authorised testing facility (ATF) lane.

Plans have been submitted to Gwynedd Council to build a new yard with space for 15 vehicles, half a mile away from its current site in Porthmadog, Gwynedd.

Director Dewi Jones, who currently operates 14 vehicles, hopes to build a vehicle testing lane on the site if he receives planning permission.

Jones said: “I was hoping to go for an ATF because we are in a rural community, with 18 miles to the nearest Vosa testing station.

“Some operators have to travel 50-60 miles to get their vehicles tested [in Aberystwyth and Caernarvon],” he added.

The operator, which specialises in aggregates haulage, had recently ordered a new Volvo 8×4 tipper to celebrate 50 years in road haulage.

Vosa currently has 300 ATF sites across the UK, three years after its testing transformation programme began.
