ST5789 : Severn View Services, Aust

Severn View Services, Aust
Severn View Services, Aust
The service area is reached from a roundabout at M48 motorway junction 1 at the England end of the 1966 Severn Road Bridge. Originally named Aust Services, the service station formerly occupied a larger site here before the opening of the Second Severn Crossing. After the opening of the new bridge in 1996 and the new route for the M4 across the Severn, the section of motorway across and adjacent to the 1966 bridge was renamed the M48.

The service area, formerly very busy, is now something of a backwater with most of the motorway traffic using the M4. The services are unusual in being a single site at a junction. Most motorway service stations occupy two sites, one on each side of the motorway.
