Top 50 Indie SK Fuels has reopened its Jet Smalleys site at Thorne, near Doncaster, after a £1.3m redevelopment.

SK Fuels owns nine Jet sites throughout the north of England, and the Jet Smalleys scheme is the third redevelopment it has completed this year.

This latest redevelopment involved major changes on the forecourt and the existing 400sq ft store was knocked down and replaced with a 2,300sq ft store.

Owner Solly Patel explained: "To keep going forward we have to invest in our sites and update them. We’ve had Smalleys for five years now and it was definitely in need of redevelopment.

"The forecourt was small and dated, with old tanks and pumps, little space for cars to manoeuvre and limited parking spaces, so we purchased an adjacent motorbike showroom and were granted planning permission to redevelop the whole site."

The site is just off the M18 close to the market town of Thorne.
