Trivia and Design
The junction was built to serve the Bourne End Mills industrial estate, with space left for further development.
Shell are proposing to redevelop the site introducing new pumps, canopy and a larger sales building to the site. The works will also see the removal of the HGV parking bays in favour of more car parking spaces and the installation of four Shell Recharge electric vehicle charging bays.
Plans were being developed to add a service area to the new Berkhamsted Bypass years before the road opened in 1993.
Margram proposed to build a filling station, hotel, restaurant and parking areas for all vehicles here in 1992, receiving permission for this in March 1993. The service area opened later that year with a Travel Inn hotel and a BP filling station, with space left for a restaurant. McDonald's later added the missing restaurant in around 1995.
The McDonald's restaurant was extended in 2018.
Little Chef Bourne End
A Little Chef restaurant was positioned nearby in Bourne End village, which opened in around 1975 and closed in 1995, after the bypass opened. Margram were granted planning permission to add a Little Chef to the facilities here in summer 2000, but upon resubmitting amended plans in 2002 it was refused on road safety grounds. Margram resubmitted the 2002 plans in 2007, and this was again refused on the basis that the Little Chef wasn't needed.
The original building later became home to Complete Outdoors, which closed in September 2020. It was demolished in 2021 to make way for a new housing development.
