A PETROL station will reopen tomorrow after closing for essential maintenance works. 

The Tesco filling station off Weymouth Avenue in Dorchester has been closed since Monday, March 11 and will reopen tomorrow, Friday, March 29. 

Repairs have been taking place over nearly three weeks while the petrol station has been closed. 

A sign displayed in the shop said the closure was due to "essential" maintenance repairs that are planned to take place.

"Apologies for any inconvenience caused during this time," the sign read.

The petrol station is sure to prove popular as it is sited just off the busy A35 and used by many passing motorists.
