WORKS are underway to build a state-of-the-art self service car wash on a small disused plot of land in Somerset.

The 'innovative' techy car cleaning station is currently being built just behind Tesco in Shepton Mallet.

The new Smart Auto Spa will be stationed just off of Cannards Grave roundabout on Station Road.

A large commercial water tank has already been installed, and just yesterday (Monday November 20), the road was dug up to install a heavy duty gas pipe.

Just some of the futuristic features that will be offered at the new modern car wash include underfloor heating, softened water, and hot wax and pre soak facilities.

Drivers will be able to wash their vehicles in peace thanks to the self service capabilities of the site, and it appears queues won't be an issue either, as numerous bays are shown in the design plans.

Further information from a render of the future car wash show it will be open from 7am until 11pm, with the building itself featuring modern lights, and a roof to keep users dry in the rainy weather.
