At a stunning rural location flanking the Cotswolds, there’s an oasis on the UK’s motorway network that offers a radical approach to motorway service area (MSA) design and is setting a new sustainable standard.

Gloucester Services southbound opened on 19 May, between junctions 12 and 11a of the M5, a year after its sister site was completed on the northbound carriageway.
