A 24 hour service station with a drive through Pie Face has been approved for development in Bundaberg East.
The United service station and its quick stop and catering facilities have recently been given the green light by the Bundaberg Regional Council.
The business will be spread over three lots at 48 Princess Street, currently occupied by commercial and residential housing, and will be open seven days a week.
The development will include four double-sided gazebos and nine car parks, including a disabled parking space, as well as two-way vehicle access.
A drive for pie face will also be featured to help with contactless delivery of pies and coffee as part of a Covid-safe plan.
As per demand, 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 watershed 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.
“Large-scale housing growth is expected in the major urban expansion area of Kalkie/Ashfield.
“As well as meeting the current growth of Bundaberg East, the development would meet future demand.”
The Bundaberg East service station will employ three people on site when fully constructed.
