New BP Connect planned for Turangi

Release date: 27 March 2018

BP confirms Holmes Group has recently applied for resource consent which would enable the building of a brand new BP Connect site planned for Turangi

 

BP GM of Retail and Assets Adrian McClellan says the new site recognises the growth and opportunity the town offers.

 

“We’re excited at the prospect of making BP’s full offer available to Turangi locals and show our long term commitment to the area. Following the introduction of the Taupo bypass BP has been looking for an opportunity to provide a convenient main highway location with our full service offer to benefit locals and tourists alike.”

 

“Our plan is to offer four choices of fuel – unleaded 91, unleaded 95, Ultimate 98 and Ultimate Diesel. Locals could also benefit from a full convenience offer, and the award-winning Wild Bean Cafe,” Mr McClellan confirmed.

 

The site plan also includes widened lanes for easier in-out access, storefront parking, free WIFI, phone charging stations and comfortable seating.

 

To ensure stores run as efficiently as possible, BP uses energy efficient LED lighting, recycled heat from refrigeration systems for water heating, and collects re-usable rainwater from the rooftop.

 

Mr McClellan says “the contribution to the local community goes beyond just building a new store. BP is proud tobe part of the local community, with each site generating up to 20 new jobs.

 

BP 2go Ridley Motors, an independently owned and operated site, will continue to operate in Turangi.
