ROAD USERS IN Dublin should expect delays on the M50 slip road at the M1 approaching the Port Tunnel due to truck overturning.

The road will be closed until 4pm approximately due to an overturned truck and debris blocking the road.

Access to M50/N32 can be made via the roundabout at old N32. The accident has not affected the use of the Port Tunnel which remains open.

Alternative route

The gardaí said drivers should expect significant delays and are asking road users to use an alternative route if possible.

The gardaí said that equipment to remove the truck is at the scene, but that it will take a number of hours to remove the truck.

There is no further information about the condition of the truck driver.
