Is it shell that has just released the new diesel fuel.

If it is they will be upgrading the tanks and pumps.

Been closed for quite a while now, I was gutted when I saw it fenced off aswell.
Lets just hope they are closing it just to upgrade.

but the thing is if it is an upgrade they will recoup the cost by putting the price up.

I'd be very suprised if it was closing as Shell made a real effort about 10 years ago to stitch up Borough road. They opened the new one opposite the old college and undercut Jet till they went under. They also bought out the Gulf garage by the Rovers and then closed it down pretty sharpish.

It does look pretty closed though!

Shell have been getting rid of a LOT of petrol stations on the Wirral lately. They are always franchises and the owners either move to the likes of BP because they are more lucrative (desperate to get more stations in Wirral) or they simply can't make them profitable...

Id be surprised if the one on Borough Road was closed down for long, if its anything like that, it will probably be a franchise change. It "should" make tons of money!

Always have fond memories of queuing up there for supplies to keep me going on the long walk home from town after a night on the ale in town. Usually having got bored waiting for a taxi and thought it's not far.

When you get to there you need 20 tabs and a bottle of pop to keep you going for the last 2 miles!

As was thought it's being redeveloped - can't be arsed to read the whole thing so I haven't found out if it'll still be Shell or if the branding will change:
