Trivia and History
The junction was built but not used for several years.
As part of Ireland's desire for new motorway services which was only discovered in 2007, a site was planned at Kilcullen. A new junction was built to accommodate it in 2015 but the site didn't open for another four years.
Topaz won the contract to operate Kilcullen as their offer scored 7% better than SuperStop's (Applegreen). SuperStop argued that this fell down to a difference in how the footpaths should be surfaced which hadn't been accounted for, and their objection prevented work from progressing any further
After clearing all the legal hurdles, it was set to open in June 2019, but was then pushed back to 23 October 2019. An official opening celebration was held on 25 October.
