Full Circle: Revamped €2.5m service station in county Waterford to serve ‘18,000 people a day’
Waterford motorists using the N25 have been given another pit-stop to choose from after Circle K opened its new service station in Dungarvan today.
Some €2.5 million was invested in the redevelopment of the new site on the N25 road at Gallows Hill on the Kilrush Roundabout.
The opening of new service station brings to 159 the total of Circle K’s garages and stores nationwide. Circle K has retained employment from all staff who worked at the service station prior to the redevelopment, resulting in the creation of 13 new local jobs.
Located on the N25 Cork-Waterford road, it is expected the new station will serve over 18,000 consumers daily. The compnay said the news service station will also feature “a range of protective measures to ensure appropriate levels of hygiene, social distancing as well as staff and customer health and safety at this time”.
Circle K Ireland Senior Director of Retail Sales and Operations Paul Dixon (pictured below) said: “We are delighted to be opening our new service station in Dungarvan, Co. Waterford today and catering for the needs of residents as well as motorists that use the N25 Cork-Waterford road regularly. At this time, it is important that we do all we can to support local communities in Ireland more than ever, so I am delighted that this new site is opening as we continue to journey through the crisis together.
“At Circle K, the health and safety of our colleagues and customers is our number one priority and our new service station opens today with a range of protective measures in place. As further phases in the government’s roadmap begin in the coming weeks, will be looking for ways to enhance these measures even further, adhering to HSE and government guidelines.
“I’d like to thank everyone involved in the redevelopment of the new site and wish our colleagues and store manager, Colm, all the best as they continue to deliver top quality customer service to the local community and road users travelling the area.”
