Grant Shapps – 2020 Comments on Improving Accessibility at Motorway Service Stations

The comments made by Grant Shapps, the Secretary of State for Transport, on 12 October 2020.

In a modern country, everyone should be able to travel. Despite improvements in some areas, we need our roadside services to be better for the quarter of a million people who cannot use standard accessible toilets.

This is why we would like to go even further by extending this to the trunk road network. I encourage as many operators as possible to apply for funding, to open up our road network to everyone who wants to use it.
