Dublin Coaches are reporting that the M50 southbound is already backed to the M1 and the journey time from M1 to Junction 7 Lucan is about 45 minutes. It's another 25 minutes from there to Junction 12 Firhouse. One frustrated motorist commented on Twitter that the M50 'is like a car park' this morning. The M7 from the M11 interchange to Naas North is also stop-start as most commuters hit the road. The M4 from Maynooth all the way into Lucan is extremely congested.
