Commuters facing significant delays after temporary closure of M50 northbound

The M50 northbound has reopened having been closed on Thursday morning due to a vehicle fire.

Dublin commuters using the M50 in both directions have been warned to expect significant delays following the closure of the M50 northbound on Thursday morning.

The M50 northbound was closed for a period of time following a vehicle fire between Junction 13 Sandyford and Junction 12 Firhouse, but it has since been reopened after the fire was dealt with by emergency services.

Commuters have been warned to expect delays in both directions on the M50; as of 7.45am on Thursday, traffic is reported to be extremely heavy on approach, with southbound delays back to Junction 10 Ballymount.

Updates on the traffic situation will be available on Twitter via AA Roadwatch and Garda Traffic.
