PROPOSALS for a new service station and retail unit next to the new bypass in Caernarfon have been lodged.

The £139million road, from the Goat roundabout on the A499/A487 junction to the Plas Menai roundabout at Y Felinheli, opened in early 2022.

Following a consultation period by agents Cadnant Planning, an application has now been submitted to Gwynedd Council, including a petrol station, electric vehicle charging hub, and retail kiosk.

This is a joint scheme between Liberty Properties and Motor Fuel Group (MFG).

Another service station project is also being considered near to this site.

It is thought that the scheme would create 25 new jobs should it receive planning approval from the council.

Emyr Williams, development director at Liberty Properties, said: “This project represents a collaborative effort between Liberty and MFG, with a shared vision of delivering a development that meets the needs of the community while adhering to the highest standards of quality and sustainability.

“Our goal is to create a facility that not only serves the practical needs of motorists but also enhances the overall experience for residents and visitors alike, while also creating new local jobs and contributing to the local economy.”

Welsh Government built the bypass with the aims of facilitating travel between towns in Gwynedd, reducing air and noise pollution, and preventing longer queues.
