DUBLIN MOTORISTS ARE being urged to avoid the M50 southbound altogether this morning.

An overturned truck is blocking the on-ramp from the N7/Naas Road.

Emergency services have also closed one lane of the M50 southbound at Junction 9 for the Red Cow.

Drivers are describing the city’s ring road as a ‘car park’.

The advice from AA Roadwatch this rush hour:
