Notes: The two services are in fact completely different, and the only thing they share is a name. Even then, they are better known as Northop Hall, but Gateway is what is used on the signs. In 2012, A Little Chef Express was introduced on the eastbound side along with 10 other Little Chef sites.

The westbound services consist of several separate facilities built on a large hill. The Subway/Costa claims to be the main public facility.
