THE investigation into a gas explosion and subsequent fire at the BP service station on Hoxton Park Road last year will come before the Coroners Court next month.
Seven large 200 litre gas cylinders exploded in August last year, causing road closures and the evacuation of local schools and businesses.
A 200 metre exclusion zone was established around the west end of Hoxton Park Road and 600 students from Mainsbridge Public School and Liverpool West Public School were evacuated to a nearby park.
Around 50 firefighters from various Fire and Rescue sites, including 40 operational firemen and their support crew, were called in to combat the flames.
In an earlier interview, a spokesman from NSW Fire and Rescue said service station staff and customers were lucky to escape injury.
He said the shop attendant acted quickly and turned off the main valve, effectively stemming the flow of LPG before evacuating.
Liverpool state MP Paul Lynch told Parliament last month he wanted answersinto what caused the explosion.
He said he wanted to know if the service station had complied with the improvement notice issued by WorkCover.
The Hansard report in response to Mr Lynch's inquiries found that the service station had complied with WorkCover notices.
"There have been a total of five visits during the last 12 months with the most recent visit taking place last month on September 12. The service station has met compliance," the report stated.
A report into the explosion is now before the Coroner and the matter is scheduled for a hearing by the Coroner on Friday, November 1.
