The first signposted service area on the northern side of the border, roughly halfway between Newry and Belfast. It is only available on the northbound side.
It is built on part of the Banbridge Coachworks site, which was partially sold off and demolished in 2010. The service station was first planned in 2006. There was also a plan to build a drive thru restaurant on the land next to the A1 which didn't happen, and instead it was used for parking and now a climbing frame sales shop.
The rest of the coachworks and other industrial units continue to be accessed through the services.
