    I see this is now open with the usual assortment of food retailers. It got me thinking about the cost of the works to put flyover in, roads etc and the fact Circle K, McDonalds will all benefit without having to contribute to this.

    Who owns this site now it’s complete. Is it the state and the retailers pay rent, rates etc or is it now in private hands after probable vast state monies were spent providing access. Just curious as to how a scenario like this works

    Generally the operator will pay TII fees. TII still own it

    They got 1.9m in income in 2018 from services. The operator has to do all maintenance and return it in a condition to do another period of time (many years) without expected heavy maintenance

    Thanks, €1.9m does not sound like much of a return considering outlay. However I imagine there is some requirement some where saying they need a certain amount of these per km of road.

    This one always felt a bit unnecessary though as 15-20 mins either side you have other services and there are much longer stretches of motorway without these.
