BP has secured 2.5ha of land in Muchea, which is at the centre of a new industrial area about 43km from Perth and on the Great Northern Highway.
The site, which is expected to cost a total of around $15 million, is expected to open by 2019. It will provide a safe resting stop with a full range of truck-friendly services and facilities at a highly convenient location.
“We are very excited to secure this land as we believe the area has significant potential for growth,” BP Australia Vice-President Sales and Marketing Mike McGuinness said.
The site will provide a heavy vehicle canopy for fuelling large, long-haul trucks, extensive truck parking, a convenience store, restaurant, showers and laundry facilities. There will also be a light vehicle canopy for fuelling cars, 4WDs and small commercial vehicles.
“BP remains committed to growing its business in Western Australia, which is also home to BP’s long-standing Kwinana Refinery,” Mr McGuinness said.
Last month, BP officially opened dual state-of-the-art travel centres, BP Baldivis South and North, on the Kwinana Freeway.
BP has invested over $40 million into BP Baldivis South and North, the first travel centres in WA. The sites are fully equipped with facilities for truck drivers and expect to service more than 9,000 customers daily.
