Part of the latest tranche of new motorway services, a new service area was planned at the new M6/M17/M18 roundabout interchange at Rathmorrisey. They are now calling it Oranmore services.

The service area encountered a number of planning issues, and a new investigation was deciding between three different possible locations. The preferred location was on the M6 to the west of the interchange, but it continues to be referred to as serving the M6, M17 and the M18.

A public consultation was held in June 2017 with a view to having a service area here open in 2019.

By Irish standards, it would be a large service area that caters for both sides of the M6 and the new M18, but it is still expected to serve less than 40,000 vehicles a day. Objections include concerns about an impact on Supermac's Galway Plaza, which was privately developed to circumvent the political bureaucracy that has delayed Athenry.

With a service area proposed for the M18 at Ennis, TII confirmed that they had suspended all work on Oranmore services in 2020, and the situation won't be reviewed until 2027.
