The Rebuilding Of A Petrol Station


Recommended Posts

(edited)

I eat at the Pasir Panjang hawker centre often, and the petrol stations across the road are my go to places to fill up, so it gave me an interesting opportunity to see the process of the rebuilding of the SPC station along the main road.

When they declared renovations and closure, with the distribution of vouchers, I figured it might just be a promotional thing to share vouchers, but I noted that the down time was almost three months, so something might be afoot and be of interest to MCF members..

This station has been here for a while, and retains the old colors and branding, so I guess the company decided to refresh the look. 

I was also keen to see if this station will be converted to a EV charging station too.. so stay tuned..

 

Firstly what it looked like before renovation:

The work began in mid May..

Some mysterious tanks - for the fuel I guess? They don't look like EV related stuff

Nah... some days I walk in, the crew looking at me expectantly, and I parked the car only to get some bread or use the POSB machine haha... potong steam...

They gave vouchers when they closed, but for the reopening, hopefully they will do something too.. 

The tire shop here is decently priced..

Got one time I drove to SPC Jervois and stopped at a pump station. 
When at the counter the cashier asked me which pump.
I said no petrol, I came to buy Mentos.
Then she told me next time I can go park there, or there, or there....
