Work has started finally started on a mototrway service station on the M5
Work has finally started on a motorway service station on the M5 between junction 11A to 12.
Stroud District Council gave Westmorland and Gloucestershire Gateway Services the green light to build it on both sides of the M5 in August 2010.
The development, which will cost more than 40 million pounds, will open in the summer of 2014.
Sarah Dunning, chief executive of Westmorland Limited, the company behind the plans, said: "We are aiming to open well before the summer holidays and have a bit of time with a slightly softer opening, ready to bring all the families who are travelling to the south west for the summer holidays."

More than 300 permanent jobs will be created after it is complete.
Hundreds of letters of support and objections have been sent to the council over the application, in the last two years, over the controversial development.
Objectors say it will spoil the landscape and create more noise and traffic, whereas supporters contend there is a need and it will create jobs.
