Boongate is a small corner of a designated retail area, which receives full signage from the north-eastbound carriageway. South-westbound traffic can access it too, but signage is limited by a lack of space and competition from nearby Eye.
Short stay customer parking is available for cars. No HGV parking is available.

Trivia and History
Shell refer to this service area as Fengate, while some sources call it Margram. Confusingly, some even call it 'Peterborough services'. However the road signs quite clearly call it 'Boongate services'.
The forecourt and restaurant were both first planned in the late 1980s by Margram and Chicken George respectively and is positioned on the former site of Peterborough abattoir. During the planning stages, Margram had planned to brand the filling station as their own however upon opening it was branded Total alongside the Chicken George restaurant which included a drive-thru lane. That Chicken George restaurant was short-lived and in 1991 Pizza Hut bought the building and turned the restaurant into one of their pizzerias.
The filling station went onto become branded Q8 in 1993, who added a car wash to the site. This later became Pace in the mid-2000s following the merger of the two companies, and BP in 2007. In 2011, current occupiers Shell purchased the forecourt and added their Select store.
