17:14 Thursday 8th of November 2018

Gardaí are at the scene of a truck fire on the M9 northbound between J3 Athy and J2 Kilcullen.

Two lanes are closed for safety reasons and traffic is slow on this stretch.

Due to vehicles taking a diversion, it's currently both ways through Athy town centre on the N78.

A large bin lorry is believed to be involved in the incident.

Elsewhere, it's busy heading onto Naas on the Dublin Rd (R445), and both ways through the town centre.

The Naas Rd (R445) has long delays into Newbridge from well before the Pfizer Roundabout, according to AA Roadwatch.

Traffic on the N7 is busy southbound from J8 Johnstown past J9 Naas North, while on the northbound lanes there are delays between J10 Naas North and J9.

Works are ongoing on this stretch with 60km speed limits.
