Secure Eurotunnel Truck Park Now Available at Coquelles Terminal
As part of Eurotunnel's major Freight Terminals improvement in 2015, Eurotunnel made significant investments to provide a secure Truck Park in Coquelles for drivers.
At the same time, Eurotunnel's priority was also to reinforce the protection of the French terminal, resulting in the installation of additional high fences all around the perimeter of our terminal. They also decided to convert some of the Truck Park spaces into a dedicated buffer zone in order to keep drivers away from the motorway when waiting to use the service.
Most recently, in order to further enhance security controls, Eurotunnel have also added a new heartbeat detector.
Now that these major improvements have been completed, Eurotunnel are now able to officially open their new secure Eurotunnel Truck Park in Coquelles.
Conveniently located within the French terminal, customers benefit from the highest level of security with lighting, high fences, CCTV cameras, thermal detection, regular patrols and 24/7 monitoring from the dedicated Control Centre.
Drivers can easily stop for a quick break, grab a snack, refuel at the Total service station or enjoy any of the services available within the Truck Park.
Please note that the parking rates are applicable from the 1st September 2017. THE FIRST HOUR will remain free of charge.
How will it work?
- For Toll Tag (TIS Box) users: the entry and exit gates will automatically open. No charge will be shown on your invoices during September 2017*.
- For all other payment methods: the driver simply takes a ticket on arrival to open the gate and insert it as required when exiting the Truck Park. Drivers will be able to pay for their stay by credit/debit card from the machine located in the exit lane or directly at the Driver Information Centre where cash payment will also be accepted in EUR or GBP (Bureau d’Information Fret).
As an introductory offer, PARKING IS FREE IN SEPTEMBER!*
