Traffic update: Volumes high but flowing, M50 heavy

Traffic is now very heavy between Newbridge and Naas inbound on the M7 as volumes start to peak. Vehicles joining the M50 from the M7 and M4 are also hitting some delays due to higher Monday morning levels. Allow extra time for Naas and Newbridge and Sallis as school runs will add to congestion for the morning commuters. Traffic is also heavy on the M4 between Maynooth and Celbridge all the way towards Lucan. Note road works between Staplestown Cross and Prosperous are continuing today from 8am to 7pm until Wednesday. The road will be closed to all through traffic for the duration of the works and traffic will be diverted via Staplestown/Ballynafagh. Local access will be maintained at all times.
