New Tesco filling station could open soon

New Filling Station

The new Tesco filling station currently being constructed within Bradley Stoke’s new town centre development could open as early as April according to staff working at the existing filling station. Work on the new facility started in January with erection of the blue forecourt canopy supports.

Fuel storage tanks arriveThe first of the two giant fuel storage tanks arrived on site on 30th January and was lowered into position within an excavation east of the new forecourt.


Pipework at new filling stationInstallation of the pump feed pipework and pump bases followed in early February, after which the forecourt concrete was laid. There is still a fair amount of work to do on the kiosk and access roads are yet to be started. Once the new filling station is open, the old facility will be demolished to make way for the new town square and freestanding non-food retail units to the north-west of the new Tesco store.
