The two new service stations on the M1 and M8 motorways will bring welcome investment and a place to rest for drivers.
The two new stations are being developed at a cost of €10 million and once opened will take 110 new staff members. During the development there are already some 200 jobs on the two sites that will include service stations, restaurants and shops
One of the stations is located at Junction 3, adjacent to where the M50 meets the M1 at Clonshaugh in North County Dublin while the other is at Junction 3 on the Dublin Cork [M8] motorway near Ballacolla in County Laois.
The new stations hope to serve some 50,000 people each day.
Paul Candon, Marketing and Corporate Services Director at Topaz said the new sites heralded a period of significant investment by the company and further job creation.
"They will also raise the bar in terms of the services available to customers and will include a shop, barista coffee, hot food to go, a cafe, wi-fi internet access, EV charger, toilets, car wash, parking and truck fuelling as well as a quick serve restaurant," he added.
