Welcome Break intends to create a new state-of-the-art Motorway Service Area (MSA) which will be the first facility of its type to have the capacity to supply charging for electric vehicles to 100% of its parking spaces.
The proposed new motorway service station on the M25, located in the Colne Valley, between the M40 and M4, is needed to improve motorway safety by reducing the current 44 mile gap between existing services at Cobham and South Mimms, which is more than Highways England’s recommended safe limit of 28 miles or 30 minute drive.
The project will create 450 new full time jobs, and over 800 during construction, along with local supply chain opportunities during the construction and operation of the Services.
The MSA will initially provide up to 100 open access Electric Vehicle (EV) parking and charging facilities for the rapid charging of all EV types , powered by 100% sustainable energy sources. Over time as EV adoption grows the charging capacity will expand further to meet it and to further reduce carbon footprint.
The proposed service area will have provision for over 1300 car parking spaces and over 200 HGV spaces with ample provision for all other vehicle types and road users. A hotel is also being proposed for motorway users. Neighbourhood security is a top priority for Welcome Break and the site perimeter will have a security fence and be covered by 24/7 CCTV cameras.
