The site was used to test a new blue colour scheme, as part of a package of improvements trying to attract more evening trade. For a while, it also included a Burger King.

The eastbound filling station closed on 23 May 2016 for a major refurbishment to the pumps, tanks and shop, and reopened in early October 2016 with these improved facilities.

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