Update 2 - Incident in Newstead
May 03, 2012
Shell Australia can confirm the emergency response to an incident at the Coles Express site in Newstead has been completed.
The company assisted emergency services in the clean up after approx 2700 litres of petrol overflowed during a refuelling of the service station in Breakfast Creek Road.
Following tests conducted on local drains, both Shell and emergency services are confident the fuel has been cleaned up. As a result emergency services have now left the site.
As a precaution Marine Safety Queensland are leaving containment booms in place on the Brisbane River.
Shell management has expressed its gratitude to its own employees, the hard working members of Queensland’s emergency services and Coles Express staff – who all acted quickly and effectively.
Shell apologised to customers for any inconvenience while the site was closed – it has now reopened.
