Fuel and convenience retailer Topaz has announced plans for two new motorway sites on the Dublin Cork (M8) and Dublin Waterford (M9) motorways. According to Topaz, the €8 million investment will be among the most modern and best equipped in the country, and will provide badly needed service to the motorists using the M8 and M9.
Work on the 600 sq m. site off the M9, Co. Laois will begin in January 2014 and is expected to be completed by July 2014. A planning application has been submitted to the Carlow site and if granted, construction is due to start next summer.
Two hundred people will be employed during the construction of the stations, with 50 full-time staff employed once the operations begin. The site in Co. Carlow will include a quick-serve restaurant, creating another 50 jobs.
Paul Candon, Marketing and Corporate Director at Topaz says both sites are key in Topaz's expansion; “These sites will set the bar in terms of the services available to customers and will include wi-fi internet access, a top quality hot food buffet and cafe, children's play area, toilets and showers.”
