Claimed business that does not exist

Hi, there is a claimed listing for a BP petrol station in my town that does not exist, and as far as I know, has never existed in that location. The correct location is already on the map and can be verified using Street View. I have marked the wrong location as "does not exist" through Google Maps a couple of times, but it is always restored. Can I get this listing completely removed, or will it keep reappearing?

 

EDIT: The bad BP listing has now been merged with the correct business (Puma).

Now the Puma listing (which is the accurate location) has either been removed or merged with the incorrect BP listing. Could someone please get this looked into? I am not the owner by the way.

Bumping. Could someone please escalate this?

I contacted Google My Business on Twitter, but they were unable to help me and told me to suggest edits through Google Maps, which I have been doing unsuccessfully since last year.

 

The correct business is Puma. It was previously Shell, but it was changed to Puma sometime last year. I don't know why there are claimed listings for BP and Yeppoon - Park St here. Can someone help get this escalated?
