Extra accessiility on the motorway
Written by Angela May Published: 23 June 2019
Continuing investment in its facilities is enabling Extra MSA Group to become one of the most accessible motorway service area operators in the UK
The Group currently operates seven Extra umbrella branded service area facilities, together with another under construction, at Leeds. By the end of next year, the majority of Extra MSA’s will have Changing Places toilet facilities, the first of which are already in place and now operational.
Closomat, Britain’s leading provider of the specialist assisted accessible toilets, has supplied and installed the equipment for the Changing Places facilities at A1M J10 Baldock and M40 J2 Beaconsfield, located by existing main toilets on each site. M25 Cobham Services will follow later this year, with A14 (M11) Cambridge and A1M J17 Peterborough planned for 2021.
“We want every visitor to enjoy the best facilities we can offer,” explained Extra MSA Group Senior Operations Executive Jerry Storer. “We are funding the provision of Changing Places toilets to give improved facilities for the disabled public at our sites. Everyone needs to take a comfort break when travelling. Changing Places toilets help us meet the needs of as many people as possible.”
