Traffic on the N4 and N7 is heavy at present due to the large amounts of holiday traffic leaving Dublin city.
On the N4 the congestion is compunded by a van broken down in the outer overtaking lane. Gardaí are at scene and the van will be removed as soon as possible.
We would like to remind motorists that when they leave the primary routes that conditions on the secondary routes and lesser roads may not be as favourable. Extra caution is urged and pre-planning is to be advised. Allow adequate time and check ahead to see what conditions are like local to your destination point.
Gardaí are endeavouring to assist in any way they can to facilitate the safe exit from Dublin city for the holiday season.
Further advice can be obtained from transport.ie, rsa.ie and garda.ie.
