The original roundabout had facilities on each corner, The roundabout has now been replaced by a normal interchange junction, but services still stand at a number of the part of the junction:
The Southwest corner (i.e. Northbound traffic after the roundabout/junction) stood a larger Little Chef, Burger King, Travelodge and a Shell filling station, along with the Markham Moor truckstop. The Little Chef in 2011 was refurbished with the new look and 'Good The Go' deli counter in the former Burger King.
The Northwest corner (i.e. Southbound traffic before the roundabout/junction), stand two building both have been Little Chef's a some time or another. A Little Chef, which is now a Chinese restaurant and was originally a Kelly's Kitchen. And secondly a distinctive dome-shaped building designed by the late Sam Scorer, and was formally a Happy Eater. As part of the original roundabout replacement plans this was threatened with demolition, but after a public campaign, was saved thanks to a junction redesign. Consequently, the resulting junction now has infamously tight sliproads, but many would say it's worth it.
