Wetherby Motorway Service Area, A1(M), West Yorkshire

A new Motorway Service Area at Junction 46 of the A1(M) including a new 126 bed hotel and extensive areas of structural landscape.

The site is designed to use the very latest technology to reduce carbon emissions as well as provide ponds and woodland for wildlife habitats. Sustainable urban drainage has been incorporated through the creation of swales and balancing ponds. Woodland, scrub and wildflower meadow habitats were specifically designed for the local geological conditions (magnesium limestone). The paved areas to the frontage of the amenity building were designed for high pedestrian activity with open direct paths to the building and avenues of specimen Himalayan Birch to guide pedestrian traffic.
