Asda has announced a fuel price drop of two pence per litre on diesel.

Drivers filling up at any of Asda’s 279 fillings stations across the country will only pay 97.7ppl for diesel from today (Friday, January 22).

The two pence per litre price cut on diesel takes to its lowest price in over six years.

The cost of unleaded fuel remains at 99.7ppl across the UK.

Asda’s national price cap will see diesel at 97.7ppl whilst unleaded remains at 99.7ppl across every single one of its filling stations.

Asda is the only retailer that has a national price cap on fuel at all 279 filling stations, ensuring every single customer knows the maximum price they will pay at the pump regardless of where they live.

Andy Peake, Asda’s senior petrol director said: “We’re delighted to be the first retailer to take diesel to its lowest price level in over six years.

‘‘This latest announcement shows that we’re committed to being the driving force behind lowering fuel prices across the UK regardless of where you live.”

Asda was the first to cut unleaded below £1 at the end of November and diesel below the £1 in January. It has claimed strong feedback from customers who said they benefitted from the price cut and would welcome further investment.

Taylor Wimpey have confirmed directly with local Councillor Nathan Wilson that the organisation retains its commitment to building a park and ride at Shieldmuir Train Station. In response to recent enquiries made by Councillor Wilson, Taylor Wimpey have advised that engagement is taking place with Network Rail over the latter’s approval procedures and that once this process is complete, work will be able to begin on site. The developer has informed the Motherwell Councillor that during the period of investigation undertaken since the commencement of building work was delayed in January 2018, an unrecorded service chamber has been discovered on site. The project cannot move forward until further clarification is provided on the nature of the service chamber and Taylor Wimpey are in the process of commissioning a contractor to assess the situation. The developer’s initial judgement is that this is likely a redundant service. A senior representative of the organisation has also informed Councillor Wilson that a member of the Taylor Wimpey production team will be sent out to inspect the vacant land following a request he made at the beginning of 2019 for maintenance work to be carried out on site should construction of the park and ride remain some time away. Councillor Nathan Wilson said: “Taylor Wimpey have communicated to me directly that the park and ride facility is a project that the organisation remains committed to delivering. “However, it goes without saying that the lengthy delay is still very disappointing and frustrating. “An unrecorded service chamber has been identified on site and progress is unable to be made until this has been investigated. “Taylor Wimpey have relayed to me that an on-site inspection of the vacant land will take place and I hold to the view that maintenance work should be carried out in the short term to improve it’s current condition. “I will continue to engage with the relevant stakeholders and re-inforce to them the importance of the park and ride project locally.
