BP Logan Motorway’s grand opening event will be held on Wednesday 28 October with formal proceedings to be begin at 10.30am and customer giveaways throughout the day.
BP is proud to announce the grand opening of the new BP Logan Motorway service centre and truck stop.
BP Logan Motorway, located eastbound on the Logan Motorway and Paradise Road interchange in Larapinta, is the first Highway Service Centre to be opened in Queensland in 10 years and is one of Australia’s largest service centres.
The service centre offers the full range of BP advanced fuels and lubricants, including diesel at every pump on site.
The site includes BP’s food offers, including the award-winning Wild Bean Café where customers can enjoy a gourmet coffee in café style seating. The site also hosts our fast food partners McDonalds and Red Rooster, with restaurant style seating for 144 customers.
BP has directly employed 38 staff for the service centre, with additional staff being employed by our fast food partners.
With an estimated 200 heavy vehicle visits per day within the first year, the centre also provides dedicated truck rest stop facilities including a separate truckers lounge, and uni-sex and female only shower facilities. The new design also features a 5.4 m truck friendly canopy, ultra high flow diesel under the canopy, and Adblue dispensed from the pump.
The site covers 3.41 hectares, with parking available for 132 cars, 2 coaches, 3 caravans, 15 B-Double Trucks, and 6 semi-trailers.
BP has also invested in technology to ensure customers using the centre are not re tolled when re-entering the Motorway after their short stop. The camera technology managed by GoVia ensures centre convenience does not cost the customer.
“The opening of BP Logan Motorway is part of BP’s commitment to grow our retail business in the Australian market,” said Mike McGuinness, Vice President of Sales and Marketing Australia.
“BP Logan Motorway is a great addition to the network of BP service stations around Australia. I would like to welcome the new employees from the local community to the BP team to help provide excellent BP service to all of our customers”.
