Havering-atte-Bower would have been a service area on the M12, an unbuilt road between North London and either Chemlsford or Southend. The preferred route included plans for a service area at Havering-atte-Bower. An exact location for the services was never defined, but it was going to be ½ mile north of the village and the site was chosen because it was 15 miles from the centre of London and sat comfortably between the existing junctions.

It was suggested that the services would have to be well landscaped so as not to have an adverse impact on the village, which would otherwise have not been directly affected by the new motorway.
