Traffic update: M7 and M50 very busy as rush hour hits

It's very busy on the M7 approaching Naas this evening, with traffic moving quite slowly from J5 Steelstown all the way past J10 Naas north. It is quiet on the opposite side of the road heading towards Dublin however. Sticking with Naas, it's quite busy around the town centre and traffic is very heavy around the Sallins roundabout, with Sallins village also quite congested at this time. It's also busy outbound from Naas on approach to the Bundle of Sticks roundabout. Traffic around Newbridge has eased off in the past hour, and there are only marginal delays at the traffic lights going through the town. The M50 is busy, but still moving OK. The busiest area is between J11 Sandyford and J9 Red Cow northbound, but there are no major delays there.
