Trivia and History

In 2014 there was a plan for a hotel to be built immediately to the west of the service area.

In March 2021, planning permission was requested to demolish the existing facilities and build a new, much larger site. A new petrol station will be built to the west, with a two-storey building including toilets, two food units, a deli, a drive thru, a shop and a seating area. New parking spaces would be provided for coaches, HGVs and cyclists. A new access road would run through the middle of the site, with a safer junction with Glenshane Road. The Oakleaf Restaurant would remain, with its own dedicated car park.

The proposal is currently being considered by the local authority, who in March 2021 granted planning permission for the same developer to build a neighbouring hotel on Fallagloon Road.
