A long-awaited motorway service area on one of the countries busiest junctions - north of Rugby, at Junction 1 of the M6 - opened at the end of April 2021, bringing confidence to hauliers and logistics companies to make the switch to electric vehicles with provision of 24 ultra-rapid electric vehicle charging points.
Construction of the Moto services development started in 2019, although planning was granted back in 2017. The new Moto services is the largest ultra-rapid charging site on the nation’s motorways network and will service vehicles using Junction 1 to travel north and south on the M1 and M6. The facility, designed to provide a dedicated resting place and parking for HGVs, offers a welcome alternative to the HGVs resting down on residential roads and industrial estates close to the motorway, a concern for local residents.
Built for the UK's biggest service operator, Moto Hospitality Limited, by main contractor Vinci Construction UK, the new service area includes an amenity building, hotel, restaurants and retail units, petrol station, a Costa drive through, extensive car and HGV parking with 24 ultra-rapid electric charging points using contactless payment
