BRUNSWICK Heads motorists will only have one option where they can fill up with petrol when the Caltex Service Station closes at the end of the month for a $2 million redevelopment.

A Caltex spokesman said the $2 million redevelopment will transform the service station in to a modern facility that will offer customers a broader range of fuels and convenience products.

“The layout allows Caltex to offer most available fuels in each lane – this will minimise queuing for our customers, with a wide range of products at all filling positions,” the spokesman said.

“This includes providing multiple locations for access to our Vortex Premium Diesel product.

The Star Mart will be refurbished into one of our modern, 21st-century convenience store design, the spokesman said.

“This allows Caltex to offer customers a range of beverages, bakery goods, fresh food and groceries, coffee and confectionery items,” the spokesman said.

“These modern Star Mart sites are being rolled out nationally.”

The underground storage tanks will be replaced, the pumps will be upgraded and the canopy and signage will be refurbished, the spokesman said.

Caltex Brunswick Heads at 5 Tweed St will close on April 29 and reopen in the second half of the year.

This will leave BP Brunswick Heads on Tweed St as the only option for motorists to get petrol during the refurbishment.
