Highbridge's Asda supermarket reveals plans for new petrol station

Cheap supermarket petrol could soon be available in Highbridge after the town's Asda store this week revealed it wants to build a new petrol station.

The supermarket in Caxton Road hopes to launch a petrol station near the entrance to its store.

Manager John McGregor told "It's something that many of our customers want and which I am regularly asked for."

"The cost of petrol in the Burnham area is not cheap and a petrol station here in Highbridge is a facility we want to introduce."

"No formal plans have been drawn up or submitted to the council, but we are discussing our options."

Petrol prices could tumble in the Burnham-On-Sea and Highbridge area if Asda's plans for a cut-price petrol station do go ahead.

Highbridge County Councillor John Woodman gave a cautious welcome to the news, telling "I would want to see the full plans before commenting, particularly if the petrol station is close to homes near the store, but I and many other motorists would certainly welcome cheap petrol."
