5.45 pm traffic update: Breakdowns causing delays on the M7

The Longmile road is extremely busy right now, with a large backlog of traffic held experiencing long delays over the past half hour. An earlier breakdown on the N7 outbound at Newlands Cross has been cleared in the past few minutes, but a further breakdown on the N7 Naas road before J2 Kingswood, resulting in the closure of the left lane. Traffic on the M50 is extremely heavy and moving quite slowly in both northbound and southbound directions. Traffic around Naas town centre has cleared up well, but there is a large volume of cars coming in from the Newbridge roundabout towards the town so there will be delays there. Traffic in Newbridge is moving quite well again, there are no major delays to report there.
