Runcorn & Widnes Weekly News - - Front Page -

● DE­MO­LI­TION is well un­der way af­ter a Run­corn su­per­mar­ket shut its petrol sta­tion to re­build it with more pumps.

Posters in­stalled at Asda on West Lane said it is due to re-open on Au­gust 29, hav­ing closed on June 3.

The site is fenced off and most of the struc­ture has al­ready been re­moved.

A plan­ning ap­pli­ca­tion filed on March 6 said the works will in­crease the num­ber of pumps from four to six, mean­ing an in­crease of fill­ing po­si­tions from eight to 12.

A back­ground state­ment lodged to Hal­ton Bor­ough Coun­cil from Sanderson As­so­ciates con­sul­tants said the num­ber of pay­ment kiosks will be re­duced from two to one, but self-ser­vice fill­ing po­si­tions will in­crease to six, which three times as many it had be­fore it shut.

Rush hour visits are ex­pected to in­crease by about half, up from 103 to 155 in the morn­ings be­tween 8am and 9am, and up from 105 to 157 in the early evening, 5-6pm.

Hal­ton Bor­ough Coun­cil said the works were ap­proved on May 18. The project in­cludes the in­stal­la­tion of 15 il­lu­mi­nated and non­il­lu­mi­nated signs, jet wash and air units, vac­uum and CCTV.

The ex­ist­ing pumps are be­ing re­moved to be re­placed.

Asda petrol sta­tion in Run­corn has been shut for redevelopment and is due to re-open on Au­gust 29.
