A 24-hour service station featuring a drive through Pie Face has been approved for development in Bundaberg East.
The United service station and its attached Quickstop and food facilities was recently given the green light by Bundaberg Regional Council.
The business will be located across three lots at 48 Princess Street, which is currently occupied by commercial and residential dwellings, and will open seven days a week.
The development will feature four double-sided bowsers and nine carparks including one designated disable parking bay as well as two-way vehicle access.
A drive-through for Pie Face will also be featured to assist with contactless delivery of pies and coffee as part of a Covid-safe plan.
According to the application, the development has been highlighted to meet the current and future needs of the growing region.
“The proposal provides a direct public benefit to the regional catchment with respect to economic development and provides a vital service for residents and tourists seeking fuel between the coastal townships and Bundaberg,” the application states.
“There is expected to be large scale growth for dwellings in the Kalkie/Ashfield major urban expansion area.
“In addition to servicing current growth in Bundaberg East, the development would meet future demand.”
The Bundaberg East service station will employ three on-site staff when it is fully constructed.
