Guanmiao service area is built on the hillside, and therefore the service building is designed into two floors to provide enough space for shops and offices. The driveways connected to the service station are divided into two,one for automobiles and the other for coaches, trailers and trucks, in order to improve the safety of driving vehicles. This service area also pay close attention to the practice of energy saving and carbon reduction.


There are several public bulletin boards at the outdoor rest areas and they show statistics about the live carbon emission and exhaust volume
generated by vehicles at this station every day. The boards act as important reminders for drivers and to encourage them not to idle engine and to care more about environmental issues.
