In the early days of motorway service area planning, many developers believed they would secure more contracts if they could incorporate their footbridge into the main building design.
This is is a list of services which allow you to cross from one side of the road to the other, without leaving the first amenity building. From an operational point of view, having the bridge helps, but it can be a nuisance when it comes to maintaining and repairing it.
There are no A-road examples.
