Access from North and south services

If you look on google earth you will see the footpath which connects North and South Services (the staff use it to walk between the two). It runs to the side of the petrol station on the South bound services and goes under the motorway to co connect with the path from the North bound services, and as such allows you to access the walk from both directions. The walk is shown as Gilberts Lane on the maps - but is a green lane

I have only tried this from the northbound side but the member who added the extra walk seems to think that it is possible from both sides. Hmm we'll be back to check asap
