Motoring ahead

WORK on a multi-million pound new home for a Wearside motor dealership is ahead of schedule.

The Jennings Motor Group is creating a new dealership on the former Ferguson Transport depot site in Southwick.

Company bosses are predicting the 5.5million development will be ready a month ahead of its planned opening at the end of September.

Once complete, the new site will house Ford and Mazda dealerships, as well as a purpose-built Ford commercial sales centre.
