THE Shell petrol station on Anzac Ave will be demolished and replaced by a new station under plans lodged with Toowoomba Regional Council.

The new fuel outlet building will be located in the far corner of the site, allowing more room for queuing.

Town planning consultant Andrew Bullen said new infrastructure on the site would give customers a better experience and make the station more environmentally friendly.

New bowsers will provide all fuel types.

When completed the redevelopment will feature changes to the layout of the fuel forecourt, parking and associated retail facilities.

The new station will be easier to access for motorists with access points from the existing crossovers to Anzac Ave and Stephen Sts to be modified and widened to enhance the internal manoeuvrability and functionality of the site.

The proposed vehicle refuelling forecourt will occupy a covered area of 328m2.

The refuelling area includes a provision for four two-sided fuel dispensers and will have a queuing space for two vehicles per dispenser, in addition to the two vehicle fill points per dispenser.

The fuel outlet building will occupy a gross floor area of 176m2 and will include a cashier/customer service area, retail space, freezer, drinks cold-room, office and storeroom.

The applicant will have to satisfy both council and the Department of Transport and main Roads given that Anzac Ave is a state-controlled road.
