Last week our guys headed over to Skelton Lake Services, a £60m site under construction to the east of Leeds (Junction 45 of the M1). The project is billed as a landmark development. One that will set a new standard for Motorway Service Areas in the UK, meeting high environmental and sustainability standards. The project is being delivered by leading owner, developer, and operator of Motorway Service Areas, Extra MSA Group.
As part of the Aire Valley Green Infrastructure Network, the new services has a ‘living green roof,’ improved pathways linking Skelton Lake’s walking routes, cycle paths and nature trails, an RSPB visitor centre and viewing deck, a dog walking and picnic area, an electric vehicle charging station, and an outdoor seating terrace.
