A service station featuring a fast food outlet will be added along Airport Drive after a development application was recently approved by Bundaberg Regional Council.
Liberty Service Station will be situated on vacant land of approximately 6,131sq metres in area and will operate seven days a week, 24 hours a day when construction is complete.
Planning and Development portfolio spokesperson Cr Ross Sommerfeld said the modern development would feature a total of 41 car parking spaces and six heavy vehicle spaces.
“The service station will include eight bowsers (16 fuelling spaces) for light vehicles and six bowsers (four fuelling spaces) for heavy vehicles,” he said.
“It will also feature products for sale including automotive parts and accessories and goods for the comfort and convenience of travellers.
“The food and drinks component will be managed by the business operator, rather than an independent operator, and will not include a drive through.”
Cr Sommerfeld said the locality of the service station would be an asset for those travelling in and out of the region and the Bundaberg West area as a whole.
The proposed development is located at the entry (gateway) to the Airport
and associated facilities,” he said.
“It will support both the Bundaberg Airport catchment, with significant future growth potential, as well as the existing passing vehicle traffic associated with Childers Road.”
