Cops cordoned the area off and covered the body with a blue blanket before moving it from the scene.
Around 30 rapid charge points are located at the site which continued operating as normal.
A eyewitness told the Sun: “The police were here in the morning, it was all cordoned off.
“There was an ambulance here too but they had left pretty early on.
“By the time that I got here the police had covered him with a blue blanket, but he was sat slumped with his back to the charging point.
“There were a couple of cars nearby but it was hard to see a lot more than that.”
The coachway is just outside Newport Pagnell, close to Junction 14 of the M1.
A police spokesman said: “Thames Valley Police officers were called this morning at about 8.40am following reports that the body of a man had been found in the Coachway, Milton Keynes.
