The Truck Trail aims to attract visitors into Leyland, support and promote our local businesses and inspire the future generation by encouraging young people to develop their talent and make their future with local companies. Truck manufacturing has shaped Leyland and we are proud to celebrate our heritage with this project.
Truck Trail has been developed as a unique project to support businesses and the visitor economy in South Ribble and also to encourage skills development, both of which are critical to local economic growth. This is part of the council’s commitment, together with the City Deal and other key developments, to deliver managed economic growth for the local area.
We welcome the support of all our businesses and partners, which have sponsored the trucks, they illustrate the leading brands located here and the great business community within South Ribble.
The project has seen South Ribble partner with Leyland Trucks, STEM First and Stone Create. Leyland Trucks were keen to get involved to celebrate Leyland’s trucking heritage and promote truck manufacturing to the engineers of the future. STEM First has played a key part in engaging local schools in the project with a focus on Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths. Meanwhile, Leyland Marketing Agency, Stone Create, has delivered on all of the design and creative elements from the initial concept to delivery of the project.
We hope that Truck Trail will attract visitors from near and far to visit Leyland and have an enjoyable day out, seeing all that South Ribble has to offer. After all, it is the UK’s best place to live!
