No Z Energy or BK for Rolleston „„ By Tom Doudney RUMOURS OF a new petrol station and fast food joint in Rolleston have had cold water poured on them by the companies involved. Rumours have been circulating on social media that Z Energy and Burger King planned to open on a shared site in the town. Z Energy spokeswoman Georgina Ball said the company would like to have a site in RollesMark Alexander ton but at this stage nothing was planned. “It’s a growing area and the roading changes will make it a good stopping place for people heading to and from Christchurch, but at this stage, we have no plans to build one,” she said. “We are, however, always looking for suitable places to build service stations and a Rolleston site could happen if we can find the right place to build and get approval.” Burger King general manager of marketing James

Woodbridge said there were “no details to share as we have not made any commitment to opening in Rolleston.” A district council spokeswoman said no resource consent application had been received for either a Z Energy or a Burger King in Rolleston. District councillor Mark Alexander said the town’s only current petrol station, Rolleston BP on State Highway

1, could sometimes be busy but it usually wasn’t too bad. It would be a commercial decision if another operator wanted to set up in the town, he said. “There is a business opportunity there but it is up to someone to grasp that,” he said. A Caltex diesel truck stop on Hoskyns Rd was opened last year. Rolleston resident Lynley

Shaw said it would be nice to have a petrol station on the other side of town but she appreciated that would come down to the business case for petrol companies. “I’d much rather have one that’s really good than two that are struggling,” she said. “I do think there is enough traffic that goes past . . . but to be fair, other than long weekends, I don’t have to wait too long [at the BP].”
