Trivia and History
Proposals for Frontier Park began in early 2016, with construction starting in the summer of 2017. Each development is situated along a corridor road, which spans from the Whitebirk Roundabout.
The petrol station and its and its accompanying facilities opened in October 2018. It is position in the north-east quadrant and immediately accessible from the roundabout, with 10 pumps for cars and four for HGVs. This has a transparent curved canopy, along with a large Spar convenience store in Euro Garages' typical design language and offering the company's usual mixture of concessions.
The site also includes one of the UK's only Greggs drive thrus, immediately accessible when entering the forecourt. Opposite the petrol station on the entry route, the right side features two more drive thru units facing each other, one of which is a Starbucks and the other is a KFC.
The site continues to be treated as one of EG Group's premier sites, not just for its wide selection of drive thrus, but also because it's one of the first to trial new brand partners. On 4 December 2020 EG Group opened Sbarro and the UK's first Cinnabon, both inside the petrol station.
A Hampton by Hilton hotel with conferencing facilities is being built opposite the petrol station, and is scheduled to open before the end of 2020. Like many others, they call this place a "motorway service area".
