A truck is causing train and traffic delays in the city centre after getting stuck under the bridge on Amiens Street.

The accident happened just after 1pm today and the road is closed off in both directions while emergency services work to clear the truck.

Train services are also suspended between Pearse and Connolly, although they’re still up and running on either side of those stations.

Irish Rail has confirmed that services are still operating from Pearse to Greystones and Bray, as well as Connolly to Howth/Malahide.

They tweeted, 'Fire engines from Tara St and a rescue tender from Phibsborough station are attending a truck vs bridge collision on Amiens St with IrishRail GardaTraffic. Train and road traffic disruption.’

A Garda spokesman advised, “Gardaí are at the scene of a RTC on Amiens St, near Connolly Station. The road is currently blocked and local diversions are in place. Expect delays and avoid the area if possible."
