Leongatha icon to expand

EVANS Petroleum has been filling tanks on both sides of Leongatha for decades and now awaits the expansion of its Westside service station.

Managing director Stuart Evans said the redevelopment was much in the planning phase as it awaits approval by South Gippsland Shire Council.

“We are going to knock down the existing space and put in a whole new sales room,” he said.

“The site will now have three rows of petrol pumps to make filling up easier than before. Most importantly the site is going to be made more accessible for vehicles to pull in and out of.”

The Westside service station redevelopment is to coincide with the redevelopment of Bair Street, with council and Leongatha Chamber of Commerce and Industry in the planning stages for transforming Leongatha’s central business district.

“We are awaiting the approval of our permits, so it is still going to be years in the process,” Mr Evans said.

Employees of Evans Petroleum are also happy with the prospects.

Nick Kelly has been working for Evans since 1991 and said he has been looking forward to this for years.

“It will be great to see Westside done up,” Mr Kelly said.

“It is a great spot for people to stop to fill up their cars. There are so many places along South Gippsland where you have to drive all the way in to town to get fuel, but both the South Gippsland Highway site and the Westside station offer a great place to pull over.”
