There was a lot of action surrounding the decision of whether or not to allow a Wawa gas station in Lower Moreland Township. After months of meetings a ruling was finally made to allow the construction at the intersection of Philmont Ave. & Red Lion Rd.
But if you've seen the property over the last two months, there hasn't been much action going on at all. Developers were supposed to continue at the start of November, however, that hasn't happened. The land was cleared out months ago, however, there has been a delay in building the actual Wawa structure.
"Township staff met with the developer and contractors on Thursday (Dec. 13) morning for a pre-construction meeting." Assistant Township Manager Chris Hoffman said. "According to the contractor, preliminary work (excavation for building footings) is set to begin on Monday, December 17.
Hoffman also stated the developers have given the township a timeline of April 2013 for completion of construction.
