DUBLIN: The Newlands Cross Upgrade Project is underway and there have been some changes to the N7 Dublin/ Limerick Rd. Drivers are advised to follow signs to reduce congestion. A 60kmph speed limit will be in place which Gardaí will be enforcing.
Dublin-bound on the N7, the road layout has changed between Green Isle Hotel and Newlands Cross. There are still three lanes of traffic but merging traffic from Boot Rd has been affected.
From tonight (Fri 13th) new temporary lanes will be put in place for outbound traffic on the N7. Three lanes, a bus lane and filter lanes onto Fonthill Rd and Belgard Rd will remain available but they will be narrower.
Cyclists are not allowed in the temporary lanes. There are no dedicated cyclist or pedestrian facilities south of Newlands Cross so there will be a diversion from Newlands Cross towards Citywest via Fonthill Rd and Boot Rd.
LEITRIM: Expect delays on the N4/ Dublin Sligo Rd in Carrick-on-Shannon due to works taking place at Attirory until Christmas.
LAOIS: Temporary traffic lights are in place on the N77 Abbeyleix/ Portlaoise Rd at The Tiles until 5pm and delays are expected.
CLARE: Works and a 50kmph speed limit are in place on the N18 Limerick/ Ennis Rd at J6 Bunratty East until later today.
GALWAY: There will be a slow moving survey on the N18 Galway/ Gort Rd between Ardrahan and Claregalway between 9:30am and 4:30pm. A stop/go system will be in operation.
