Call for more m-way services

INCREASING congestion and safety concerns have led to government plans for more motorway service stations.

The Department for Transport wants to see the number of stations rise dramatically under proposals that could also see them double in size.

Ministers want to increase the number of stops for safety reasons.

They are normally around 30 miles apart to equate to half an hour’s driving time, but as the network gets busier it could mean the time gap is longer.

The changes, drawn up in a consultation paper for the DfT, would see new service areas built on particularly busy motorways.
