After more than 500 worksite inductions, 1400 cubic metres of concrete and nine months of hard work, the South Coffs Service Centre is now open for business.
The Coffs Coast’s newest food and service centre, located at the corner of Stadium Drive and the Pacific Highway, includes Oliver’s Real Food, Hungry Jacks, Boost Juice and Caltex Foodary.
In addition to being a new hub and gateway for the Coffs Harbour Bypass, the centre will deliver 110 jobs for the local economy, with all operators undertaking extensive recruitment drives to meet demand.
The project director, Spectrum Retail’s Julian Ackad, told Triple M it was exciting to see the project come to life after nine months of construction.
“We’re really proud of the fact that more than 500 contractors – engineers, sparkies, builders and concreters – many of who are locals – have been on site since June last year to help make this project a reality”, Mr Ackad said.
“The Coffs economy keeps going from strength to strength and we see this project as an exciting addition that’s largely built by local workers, as a gateway to the region”.
The new service centre will be located at the start of the Coffs Harbour Bypass, which is scheduled to start construction next year.
“Now is the time to be investing in the Coffs Coast, and we’re really proud to be opening this project at the gateway to a booming region”, he said.
