As part of Ireland's new-found desire for new motorway services in 2007, a site was planned at Gorey, as part of the N11's upgrade to become a motorway. The services were built in 2015 and Topaz won the contract to operate it, but following legal objections from SuperStop, the services have been unable to open. A security guard patrols the site 24 hours a day.
Applegreen, who are part of SuperStop, claim there isn't enough traffic and that they have already built their own services at Wicklow. A traffic assessment had previously suggested only one service area was required on the M11/N11 route, which allowed Gorey to overrule many local objections which had been received.
The planned amenity building has three entrances, serving the forecourt, car park and picnic area. It will likely be branded Re.Store.
In 2017, it was announced the services would be opening later this year.
It is sometimes called Gorey North.
