TRAFFIC ON THE M50 has eased following a crash on the motorway during rush hour this morning.

Gardaí had warned motorists to expect significant delays this morning after a crash on the M50.

The M50 southbound was down to one lane following the collision near Junction 9 at the Red Cow.

This was having a knock-on effect for northbound traffic due to onlookers.

AA Roadwatch had tweeted: “Extremely long delays now for traffic towards Dublin, between J7 Maynooth and the M50, which is a distance of about 15km with earlier incidents on the M4 and the M50 adding to busy commuter traffic.”
