The services would have designed with curved sliproads on each side, to take advantage of the land available.
There is road bridge over the M5 immediately south of the proposed service area and at either end of it there is a small road which runs alongside the M5 and ends at the fields, these would have been the services' emergency access roads.
One of the concerns with the site is that it's very exposed, being partly a disused runway, meaning sensitivity was required in the design. It was originally planned in 1968 to open in 1970, then repeatedly postponed.
Taverna and Granada would have been allowed to bid for the services, despite them owning Leigh Delamere, as little traffic was expected to take that route.
Michaelwood services are 10 miles south of here, and 10 miles to the north is another unbuilt service area at Staverton. Unlike Michaelwood, Moreton Valence was expected to be fairly busy from opening.
