Plans for another Metro service station in Fyshwick

Motorists are set to have greater choice of fuel outlets in Fyshwick with plans lodged for another Metro service station, this one on the site of Capital Car Wash in Whyalla Street Fyshwick.

Australian-owned Metro Petroleum already has an outlet on the other side of the railway line in Barrier Street that is well known for its fuel discounting.

The development application, prepared by Purdon Planning on behalf of Gill Group Australia Pty Ltd, says the site (the eastern corner of Block 6, Section 12) at 51 Whyalla Street was formerly used as a service station but it was remediated and has since operated solely as a car wash.

The lessee now wants to reinstate the service station on the site while retaining the car wash.

The existing building will largely remain in its current form with a timber deck demolished to make way for new concrete hardstand and new petrol bowsers, an overhead canopy, bunding and underground fuel storage tanks.

The car wash and the petrol station will share the 70 square metre office/shop, and customer parking will be provided at the rear and side of the proposed development.

Two awning/fascia signs and a six-metre high, illuminated pylon sign are proposed.

Metro says on its website that it has one of the largest independent service station networks in Australia, with over 200 service station outlets across NSW, Victoria and Queensland.

I hope the security is better. The other Metro has been broken into numerous times. Again only recently. And who can forget the footage of thieves dragging their ATM down the street with a vehicle?

Hopefully this will eliminate the lines and congestion on Barrier St.

    Is OK if you go early - I believe they open at 6am - but sometimes the fuel truck is there which can be a pain... :)
