Neighbourhood News Update: 12 February 2021

Relocation and upgrading of the Caltex Waterfront Fuel Station

With the ongoing improvement and redevelopment of the Canal District of the V&A Waterfront, the Caltex fuel station at the Dock Road entrance to the Waterfront will cease operation at end February 2021 and will be relocated to a more conveniently accessible site adjacent to the newly created traffic light intersection. The current site is to be prepared for a new commercial development.

Between end February and 30 April 2021, motorists may experience a build-up in traffic when travelling in and out of the Waterfront via Dock Road, whilst the decommissioning of the fuel station is underway.

The existing fuel station has been at the Waterfront in its present form, layout and pumping capacity for more than 20 years and the Waterfront is busy with design finalisation of a new modernised fuel station and convenience store in the same area that will be able to meet the demands of a growing Waterfront and City.

We apologise for the inconvenience that will be experienced by motorists during the redevelopment work on this site.

We also wish to thank all the customers of our Caltex fuel station over the more than 20 years of its existence and look forward to presenting the newly designed premises around mid-2022.
