Trivia and History

Although most sources call it Chelmsford service area, the official name is Boreham service station.

The Chelmsford Bypass (and this awful junction) was built on the cheap in 1986. Space was left in the middle of it for a service area, which came a few years later.

Note that there is a second Premier Innbook positioned on the opposite side of this junction. Confusingly, that one takes the Boreham name, while this one is demoted to Springfield.
