Essar UK’s new flagship forecourt opens in Lea Gate

Essar UK opened its new flagship forecourt at Lea Gate, situated on Blackpool Road, Preston, PR4 0XB on Friday, 23 June 2023.

As part of driving community convenience, the new forecourt has both an 8 bay fueling area for normal vehicles at the front and a second 4 bay area specifically for heavy vehicles (HGV) at the back. The fuel pumps will include super grades of fuel including high octane Essar 99 as well as Adblue. For an alternative option, two Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging bays are also on site.

For those looking to clean their vehicles, a large 4 bay valeting centre using Turtle wax pro cleaning solutions, complete with innovative air blasters will leave cars with a streak free finish, as well as air fragrance and vacuum.

For convenience, a large 3,000 sq. ft. Morrisons store will provide a daily kitchen offering fresh sandwiches and bakery goods made on site as well as fresh hot and cold food to go. The store includes an innovative refrigeration system that recovers 97% of heat lost from fridges to take care of the sites heating needs. There is a separate seating area and Costa Coffee Express.

Carlos Rojas, Chief Marketing Officer said, “We are delighted to be opening our new flagship forecourt for customers at Lea Gate. Our whole approach is about driving customer convenience and we have made visiting this site an easy and value-added experience by creating numerous fuelling bays, a large convenience store, a Costa Express, having friendly staff and much more on offer.”
