Trivia and History
In 1986 there were plans for a forecourt and restaurant on either side of the road here. A pair of Mobil forecourts opened here, named Orsett Cock.
The plans for a restaurant persisted for some time, and in 1995 an eastbound Little Chef opened which closed in 2005. A McDonald's drive thru later opened on the westbound side.
In April 2018, the southbound filling station became one of three trial sites within the UK to gain a card-only self service checkout situated within the M&S store.
In summer 2020, BP submitted a planning application to install POLAR electric vehicle chargong points on the westbound side. A decision is set to be made in late 2020.
