I canâ€™t think of a more suitable site for this type of land use. The edges of motorways are eminently suitable for this type of development providing, as Diaspora said, certain conditions are considered. Here in France , the local Ikea has a three-storey car park despite that fact that it is located in the low-rise suburbs. It is very well served by public transport but still most people drive. I donâ€™t think we should demonise people for this as the real problem lies with the supermarkets; cinemas and other daily activities located on the M50which are not served well by public transport.
The other thing is that whilst Ikea genuinely offer good design at low prices (I feel an ad coming on) it would be nice if they could apply the same logic to their blue and yellow sheds which line Europeâ€™s motorways and try to do something that responded more to there generic (placeless!) locations.
