PICS: City Centre Traffic Is At A Standstill Because Of A Banjaxed Aircoach Blocking An Entire Junction
Sure isn't this just what we need of a Monday evening.
An Aircoach has broken down in the city centre – and honestly, if you'd asked us a worse spot for something like this to happen, we'd be stumped.
The coach is sprawled across two lanes at the junction of O'Connell Street and Parnell Street, where roadworks have already narrowed the road down to nothing.
And to say it's causing chaos in the city would be an understatement...
With diversions in place, and all the stops being pulled out to work out how the hell they're going to get around this one.
