he developers of the new service station and drive-through fast food restaurant set to hit the Rose City and create a stack of local jobs have revealed when the exciting project will be completed.

Warwick’s newest service station and fast food restaurant is only weeks away from opening its doors to the community, with the development expected to create more than 20 new jobs.

Developers V and K Business Holdings first lodged an application for the new businesses at the corner of Albion and Percy Sts in 2019, including plans for a fuel station and a fast food franchise with both drive-through and dining capacities.

A spokesman for the developer confirmed this week that after more than three years of planning and a construction period severely delayed by heavy rainfall, the new complex was due to be completed by early to mid-September, pending weather conditions.

He said the fuel station would operate under the NetCo brand and the Subway store currently located further down Albion St would be moved to the new site.

“Warwick is a very vibrant town, and there’s a lot of opportunities in Warwick. The location of the site is very outstanding,” the spokesman said.

“We have two highways passing through, so it’s a very good opportunity for the town and the community.

“This is our first development, so it’s very exciting.”

The NetCo petrol station will have six bowsers to service both trucks and cars or other vehicles, with Subway customers able to either use the drive-through lane or sit down and dine at the venue.

The spokesman said the Subway franchise would require about 15 new team members in addition to those already working at the existing store, and the fuel station would create another six to 10 new jobs.

“This development we are doing, the majority of the work is being given to local contractors,” he said.

“That way the money stays in town, the jobs are being created in town, and it’s a good thing for our community.”
