Dublin Port Tunnel fully reopens following two truck crash

The crash caused major traffic disruption across the city this morning.

Updated at 12.15pm

ALL LANES OF the Dublin Port Tunnel have reopened after a crash involving a number of trucks.

It’s believed two trucks collided and a third truck then made impact with one of the crashed vehicles.

The crash happened at around 7.40am and a large fuel spillage on the road led to a delay in the roads being reopened.

The fuel spill has now been cleared and all driving lanes have fully reopened to traffic.

Gardaí are asking motorists to approach the tunnel with caution.

One man has been brought to hospital – but his injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.

AA Roadwatch has reported severe delays all morning on the M1, with traffic backed up to Junction 4 for Donabate. The heavy traffic has yet to clear.

Motorists were diverted onto Coolock Lane while drivers attempting to access the Port Tunnel from the Clarehall Road were diverted onto the M50 southbound, according to the traffic monitoring service.

Dublin Fire Brigade said it had four fire engines and two ambulances attending the scene.

With reporting by Hayley Halpin.
