Extra believes that it should not only be Motorway Users who benefit from a MSA, but also those local communities who host them.
Working with the local community, Extra is keen to develop a bespoke scheme that, in addition to the public safety benefits, can also deliver significant social and environmental benefits for the local area.
Extra is currently constructing a new MSA in Leeds (Leeds Skelton Lake Services).
As part of this development, Extra has been working with Leeds City Council, local wildlife groups and the RSPB to provide an accessible upper-level Viewing Deck and Visitor Centre within the MSA that overlooks Skelton Lake and promote the nearby 1000 acre RSPB nature reserve.
As part of the proposals for the new Motorway Service Area at the M25 West (Warren Farm) Extra are seeking to deliver new recreational opportunities for residents of Chalfont St Peter through the provision of new areas of open space with new and accessible walking and cycle routes.
