Traffic update: Bottlenecks on M4 and M7, M50 heavy southbound at Red Cow

The usual bottlenecks on the M4 and M7 are beginning to slow down traffic and flows are at a standstill at times. Flows are heavy on citybound lanes from Maynooth to Kilcock, and as far as Lucan on the M4. The Newbridge to Naas corridor is also seeing significant traffic but it starts to free up after Kill. It's also stop-and-go at the Bundle of Sticks Roundabout and along the Sallins Road and Millennium Link Road. Southbound lanes of the M50 before and after the Red Cow are also busy.

The disruptions will last for two weeks and delays are expected.
