Here’s Where Traffic Is Moving Very Slowly In Dublin This Morning


Traffic, traffic, traffic. 

Can’t live with it…could certainly live without it. 

Here’s a round up on Dublin’s busiest streets this morning, with thanks to AA Roadwatch:

  • It’s busy on Harold’s Cross Road, on approach to the Grand Canal through to Leonard’s Corner on Clanbrassil Street.
  • There are delays on the Phibsborough Road from Harts Corner to Doyle’s Corner. 
  • The North Quays have delays at Wolfe Tone Quay and Arran Quay.
  • North Wall Quay is busy on approach to Samuel Beckett Bridge. 
  • Inbound on Amiens Street is busy from North Strand to the Five Lamps. 
  • Traffic on the Swords Road is is busy but moving inbound through Drumcondra. 
  • The Naas Road is busy inbound from the Red Cow interchange to the Long Mile Road. 

No delays or incidents have been announced this morning, thankfully. 

Motorists are reminded, however, that Winter Funderland is on at the RDS until Sunday, January 15. The Ice Rink is open 10am – 8pm, with Funderland itself opening 2pm – 9pm Monday – Friday. Delays can be expected through Ballsbridge, on Anglesea Rd, Simmonscourt Rd, Shelbourne Rd and Pembroke Rd. However, the heaviest traffic is likely on Merrion Rd.
