A busy Swindon supermarket petrol station has reopened following a month’s closure for refurbishments.

The fuel station at Sainsbury’s supermarket on Paddington Drive in Bridgemead initially closed on Tuesday, January 2, and it remained shut until Friday, January 26.

Sainsbury's revealed that the reason for the month-long closure was maintenance with scheduled improvements taking place at the fuel station kiosk.

A spokesperson for the supermarket at the time said: “The petrol station at our Bridgemead store is temporarily closing while we make some improvements.

“We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and we look forward to welcoming our customers back to the forecourt when it reopens later this month.”

The construction work at the site already commenced on the first Tuesday morning of January as the petrol station was cordoned off by metal fences.

On Monday morning this week drivers could be seen filling up their vehicles once more while the roof was newer and updated.

The supermarket remained open throughout the month-long closure while no plans are currently in place to revamp Sainsbury’s other fuel station in Swindon on Oxford Road.
