An aging service station in Gin Gin could be redeveloped to include a new Caltex and food and drink facility if a development application is approved.
Bundaberg Regional Council recently received the application for Material Change of Use (Service Station and Food and Drink Outlet) from applicant Chevron Downstream Fuels Australia Pty Ltd.
The proposal includes the redevelopment of an existing service station/truck stop facility on Mulgrave Street, allowing improved separation between light and heavy vehicles, as well as access to a nearby caravan park.
If approved, the Gin Gin Service Station development will include:
- food and drink outlet
- service station building
- separate refuelling areas for both heavy and light vehicles
- three underground fuel tanks and associated car parking and landscaping.
- access to the service station/truck-stop facility will be via three existing crossovers onto Bruce Highway/ Mulgrave Street at appropriate separation distances along the road
- a dedicated truck egress cross-over , separate to the main site entry / exit, for traffic safety purposes
- 25 formal car parks in total including one space for persons with disabilities and two spaces for air/water
- car refuelling canopy over four refuelling dispensers with eight filling positions for general vehicles
- 24 hours, seven days a week operation
The application states if approved, the benefits of the development include providing modern and attractive building design and landscaping with an enhancement to the Mulgrave Street frontage and improving safety and efficiency of the site for vehicles.
