  1. Someone really needs to look at the signage for the Scotch Corner services.
    I travel past there quite frequently and since the major upgrade works were completed there don’t seem to be a many advanced signs as there used to be.
    There’s the usual “services in 3 miles” sort of sign in both directions, but there’s no signage in the last mile or so. There’s no sign to say “services next exit” and the sign prior to the exit has place/destination names on, but no mention of services or “Scotch Corner”.
    When you actually reach the junction, there is a small sign at the back end of the hatched marked triangle between the main carriageway and slip Road which simply states “rest area”, but by the time you see it, it’s already too late to get onto the exit slip.
    Prior to the major upgrades there were more signs, signs which included “services” along with all the other junction/exit/destination information and especially a “services” sign at the start of the 3,2,1 countdown markers.

    I know where the scotch corner services are and I’ve missed the exit a couple of times, enough for me to put extra care and effort into looking for the signs. The signs just aren’t there, in either direction. Anyone that doesn’t know that section of road doesn’t stand a chance of accessing the services if they’re not using a sat-nav (programed to take them to the services) and relying solely on the expected signs that aren’t there.
