Warrington’s £75m service station to set ‘new standard’

Extra MSA Group has progressed its plans for a “new concept” motorway service area at Junction 11 of the M62, delivering a mix of food and drink outlets, retail and leisure units, and business facilities.

A planning application has been submitted to Warrington Council for the £75m scheme, which could employ 300 construction workers during the build period and 228 full-time staff at the site when open.

Extra MSA undertook a public consultation on the draft plans earlier this year.

The developer said the buildings had been designed to “echo surrounding agricultural buildings” in the area, which sits off Birchwood Way to the north of Junction 11.

The professional team includes Architecture 519, Spawforths, i-Transport, Wardell Armstrong, Zerum, SLR Consulting, and Sanders Studios.

Andrew Long, chief executive of Extra MSA Group, said: “We are delighted that these proposals are moving forward to the next stage, with our planning application having now been submitted. Extra has previously consulted with local stakeholders and the local community, to where reasonably possible take all feedback into account.

“We are committed to this £75m inward investment for the Warrington region, which will improve road safety for this important section of the Motorway Network, as well as creating a significant number of jobs, along with a full range of other important  economic, social and environmental benefits. Extra MSA Warrington will further endorse a new standard for motorway service sreas in the UK.”

These services are only 6 miles from Burtonwood Services, why are they even being contemplated? Why is a large area of countryside being concreted over to create them? No thought for wildlife or the various leisure walking routes that have been recently created there after the landfill environmental works were completed. Hopefully Warrington Council will see sense and reject this proposal as there’s no need for it at all !!

@Fake News – unless, of course, the plan is to close Burtonwood Services to allow the eastward extension of Omega, replacing it with this…

You heard it here first.

It looks great and is thoroughly commendable. But why is quality architecture, a strong sense of place and good quality site masterplanning a ‘new concept’. Should these things be the norm?

By Adam Ash

Good point about the recent walking routes etc.
WBC see sense? It’s development, innit?

Their gap analysis is completely flawed and based on routes that no one with a sat nav would take. There’s a hotel, shopping precinct, service station and the developers staple golden arches within 2 miles of the Birchwood junction and Lymm truck stop is only 6 miles away.

At rush hour you can come off the slip road, park up, grab a Ginsters and a Flavia, wazz, back in the Lexus and on to the 62 in the same place you left the queue.

Lovely stuff.
