£64m ‘environmentally sustainable’ motorway services welcomes new brands
A new multi-million pound motorway service area in Yorkshire is set to welcome a host of new brands as the COVID-19 lockdown continues to ease.
Leeds Skelton Lake Services is set to become home to brands such as Nando’s, KFC, LEON, Pizza Express, Harry Ramsden’s, Upper Crust, Mi Casa and Chopstix and Sourced Market.
In addition, the site, which is operated by Extra MSA Group, will have a 100-bedroom Ramada Hotel.
Situated at junction 45 of the M1, Leeds Skelton Lake Services aims to be one of the most environmentally sustainable motorway service areas in the UK.
Andrew Long, chief executive of Extra MSA Group, commented: “We’re delighted that Leeds Skelton Lake is now open with a range of popular food and beverage brands.
“Our tenant operator partners have worked closely with us during lockdown to ensure all their procedures and practices are safe, and we are able to provide a brilliant experience for our customers.
“This new motorway service area gives road users a safe place to rest, eat and refuel as well as being an important contribution to road safety and playing an integral role in supporting the national economy.”
Roger Marsh OBE DL, chair of the Leeds City Region LEP and the NP11, added: “The opening of Leeds Skelton Lake Services is a welcome addition to the infrastructure of Leeds City Region, increasing our connectivity, future-proofing our transport links, creating jobs and boosting economic growth.
“Our region, and the wider Northern Powerhouse, is leading the way on driving the clean growth revolution and the promotion of schemes like these that promote electric vehicle charging points is a crucial part of this.
“We have a unique opportunity across the North to unlock the economic opportunities that de-carbonising our economy will bring and embrace the new technologies that will drive our future growth.”
