Traffic update: M7 very busy for long stretches

Traffic has gradually built on the M7 throughout the evening and it is now at the busiest it has been with slow movement all the way from before J7 Kill to well past J9 Naas. The M50 is also particularly busy so far this evening, with traffic tailing off at the Red Cow junction causing considerable delays. J12 Firhouse all the way up to J7 Lucan is well blocked up, while southbound on the M50 is busy from J7 Lucan down to J10 Ballymount. It's also very busy in and around Naas. The Sallins roundabout is the busiest of those areas, with traffic in the village moving at a snails pace too. Newbridge remains delay free so far this evening, with just a small bit of traffic through the main street but that is causing no major delays.
