The 12m2 room features a peninsular WC, height-adjustable adult-sized changing bench, height-adjustable washbasin and a ceiling track hoist, installed by Clos-o-Mat.
Simon Turl, Roadchef CEO explained: “We’re delighted to now be able to meet the needs of all people with a disability and we look forward to welcoming customers who are now able to take advantage of this facility.”
Changing Places campaigner, Tony lough MBE, commented: “Changing places mean that families like mine, with someone who needs help with intimate care, can venture away from home and relax.”

Under British Standards, a Changing Places is in addition to conventional (Building Regulations Document M) wheelchair accessible toilets, and provides 12m2, with additional equipment including an adult-sized height adjustable changing bench and ceiling track hoist.
