Traffic chaos as parts of M50 closed due to multiple collisions

Commuters are facing traffic chaos this evening as emergency services deal with two major incidents on the M50.

Traffic has come to a standstill and motorists are being warned to expect serious delays.

The middle and right lanes at J11 Tallaght are blocked as a result of a four car pile up. Gardaí and emergency services are at the scene and diversions are in place.

A second incident on the M50 northbound just before the M1 interchange has left three lanes blocked.

Meanwhile, AA Roadwatch are reporting heavy delays on the M50 southbound “due to onlookers to the crash”.

It is not known yet if anyone has been seriously injured following the collisions.
