TRAFFIC DELAYS ARE expected after the East Link became stuck in an upright position for over an hour this morning.

Traffic couldn’t pass over Tom Clarke Bridge from either side due to the bridge being “stuck on open”, and diversions were put in place.

At around 12.20pm, Gardaí said that the East Link Bridge “is now closed and the Port Tunnel is reopened”.

AA Roadwatch say that traffic is heavy on the Sean Moore Road from the Beach Road junction northbound, and East Wall Road; North Wall Quay is also slow coming up to the bridge. 

The delays were having a “knock-on effect” on the Dublin Port Tunnel Southbound, which drivers had been asked to avoid if possible.
