M50 northbound shut down following horror crash

Significant traffic problems are being reported on the M50 northbound on the southside of Dublin.

Reports indicate that a serious collision has caused the closure between the Cherrywood exit and the M11 merge, junctions 16 and 17 respectively.

The road is set to remain closed until approximately 4pm today

The M11 Wexford/ Dublin Rd northbound will remain closed until approximately 4pm between J5 Bray North and the M50 merge while emergency services deal with a serious collision. 

It's very heavy on this route.

Diversions are in place at J5 but you're advised to exit at J6 Bray/ Fassaroe or earlier to avoid the delays.

Motorists waiting in the traffic are also reminded to stay inside their vehicles as Gardaí are trying to direct traffic away from the area.

As a result of the diversions, it's very slow east of the motorway through Shankhill and Bray.

It's also busy through Enniskerry and Kilternan due to motorists diverting off west of the motorway.

Update: The M11 Wexford/ Dublin Rd northbound has reopened at J5 Bray North and traffic is moving well on the M11 itself.
