Amongst truck drivers, few things are more likely to raise stress levels than the sight of a dropping fuel gauge in an area unpopulated with suitable refuelling points.
Drivers travelling on the busy N11 highway from Dublin to Wexford and on to Rosslare Europort will be relieved to know that a new service station has opened its doors for business on the approach to Newtownmountkennedy village.
Family-owned and managed by Gerard Marbach and his son Benjamin, the €4million, Texaco-branded outlet is located little more than 200 yards from the Junction 12 interchange and set on a 8.5 acres site bordered by trees on all sides.
Facilities include everything a trucker needs, with comfortable entry, access and generous turning space for even the heaviest units. Designed with six access lanes of two pumping points each, giving it sufficient capacity to refuel 12 vehicles simultaneously, it has the required pumping area for HGVs.
Numerous other comfort and convenience services include a Daybreak store, a Bewley’s Coffee café with its own separate seating area serving hot and cold sweet and savoury choices, plus toilets and restrooms.
