New SuperPumper Gas Station Planned for Costco Despite Protests

| 1 Comment

Costco Wholesale Club is in the process of obtaining permission from the Township of Edison to construct a highway-type superpumper gas station capable of fueling up to 16 vehicles at once. The site is at the Costco/Walmart Shopping Center at the corner of Vineyard Road and Route 27. Does this area need the congestion this type of station will create in a spot at the edge of our town that already causes traffic issues for Metuchen?

A meeting on March 15 at Edison Town Hall prompted a group of concerned citizens to make their protests known. At present, there are also several large retail buildings planned for the same area. Is there any way to keep this type of massive construction from going up?

Metuchen's The District is due to begin construction soon. The stores and office space available there will hopefully be prime real estate and help to revitalize our downtown area. But could this type of additional construction near the old Ford plant work against or with our proposed developments?
