Major delays in Newbridge following accident at busy junction
17:18 Friday 22nd of September 2017

An accident at the Moorefield junction has resulted in major traffic delays in Newbridge town centre this evening.

The incident occurred less than 30 minutes ago, and it is slowing traffic coming from all four directions. Traffic coming from the Green Road area is the worst affected, and is now backed up as far as the entrance to the Beechmount estate.

Gardaí are currently at the scene.

Elsewhere, traffic remains extremely heavy on the M7 from J5 Steelstown down to J11 M9/M7 Interchange, though there have been no incidents on that route this evening.
