Northern Rivers service stations closed for renovations

UPDATE: MOTORISTS on the Northern Rivers will soon have two redeveloped service stations to purchase petrol at following renovations at outlets in Lismore and Brunswick Heads.

A Caltex spokesman said the $2 million Brunswick Heads Caltex 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.

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 and the Village Green fruit shop as the only options for motorists to get petrol during the refurbishment.

The United service station on Ballina St, Lismore, has also closed for renovations.

Following the refurbishment the United will offer premium 95 and 98 octane fuels, eight new bowsers and a renovated shop with an expanded range of convenience items.

The United is expected to reopen on April 24.

 

WEDNESDAY 2PM: 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.
