As part of Ireland's new for new motorway services it found in 2007, as well as the upgrade of the N11 to motorway, a site was planned at Gorey.
The service area was built in 2015 and Topaz won the contract to operate it, but following legal objections from SuperStop, the now-completed service area has 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, but the road signs just say 'Gorey'.
