Traffic update: Massive delays on the M50 following collision

There are long delays on the M50 northbound following a collision between J9 Red Cow and J7 Lucan. Delays begin all the way back at J12 Firhouse and continue up past the Lucan exit. There's one lane blocked there. Another collision on the M4 outbound is causing long delays on that route too. The accident is near J5 Leixlip and there are massive delays for a number of miles there. It remains extremely busy around Naas, with heavy traffic on the M7 starting at J8 Kill and continuing all the way past Naas and nearly as far as Newbridge. Naas town centre is still very congested, while the long delays on approach to the Sallins roundabout from all directions have not eased either. The village of Sallins is also extremely busy too, with delays there in both directions.
