According to figures provided by Motorway Services Online, there are currently 14 toilet facilities provided to the Changing Places standard in England. But I am clear that customers should have access to toilet facilities at motorway service areas that are appropriate to their needs.
I have therefore agreed to address this issue through my forthcoming Taskforce on the design and facilities of Motorway Service Areas (MSAs). The Taskforce will commission independent advice on the options and potential levers to increase well-being of all visitors to MSAs in England.
We will also consider the accessibility requirements of disabled and older travellers when visiting MSAs as part of the final Accessibility Action Plan due to be published in 2018.
