Traffic is very heavy to the northside of the city following the incident on the M50.
Two lanes are now open on the M50 southbound after Junction4 Ballymun, but it may fully close temporarily again to facilitate the removal of the truck.
Traffic is heavy from the M1 interchange, backing up onto the Clarehall Road and Port Tunnel approaches.
Northbound traffic is also slow on approach from before Junction 5 Finglas.
