Hull West services
A pair of petrol stations on the A63 close to Hull, providing the facilities missing from the nearby Humber Bridge picnic area.
Only the westbound side is signposted as a petrol station. In fact, the unsigned eastbound side is very easy to confuse with the Beverley exit, positioned right behind it.

Trivia and History
Both petrol stations were built in the mid-1990s. The eastbound side has a large abandoned area positioned immediately to the west of it - it looks like this had been used as lorry parking until about 1998.
The westbound side still has a lorry park in the equivalent position. In 1996, the owners received permission to turn the lorry park into a hotel and drive thru diner, but this wasn't taken forward.
In 1999, a plan to turn the abandoned eastbound land into a Lexus showroom was refused. In 2019, 23.5 Degrees applied for planning permission to turn it into a Starbucks drive thru. This would have been designed to leave space for the rest of the land to be developed. The plan attracted concern from Highways England, who these days insist that new developments have lengthy exit roads, and it was withdrawn.
