DCAN 15: Vehicular Access Standards
Petrol Filling Stations
12.1 The access shall generally be in accordance with section 10 above.Normally a separate entry and exit shall be provided, each at least 7.3m wide and separated by at least 20m. Generally a system of one way working should be operated. It is extremely important that visibility splays are kept free of any advertising signs.
12.2 On main traffic routes, petrol filling stations should be accessible without dangerous right-turning movements across traffic flows. This often means the pairing of stations on either side of the road - on both single and dual carriageways.
