Construction has begun on the controversial lunch bar and service station at the busy Chester Pass Road roundabout.

The $2.4 million service station was granted final approval by the State Administrative Tribunal in December after the development was originally rejected by City of Albany.

The council rejected the application for the service station on the roundabout in February last year amid safety concerns — a decision appealed by the proponent, Peter Webb and Associates, through the SAT.

The service station’s entry and exit points were agreed by Main Roads and developer Procon Developments in May, paving the way for the development to go ahead.

It will be Albany’s 19th fuel outlet. Procon Developments was contacted for comment.
