Updated at 7.45pm

THE N4 HAS reopened after a truck overturned on the N4 earlier today.

The incident caused major delays for traffic on the M50 and several other routes in Dublin. The M50 is now moving well in both directions.

Emergency services were called to the scene just before Junction 3 Lucan.

No one was injured in the incident and the driver of the truck managed to walk away from the scene.

Knock-on effect

The N4 was entirely closed outbound for several hours, leading to a massive traffic backlog on the M50 in both directions.

Southbound delays led from Junction 4 Ballymun and northbound delays are from Junction 11 Tallaght. One lane of the carriageway reopened shortly before 3pm.

Two cranes were required to move the truck and the delays were exacerbated because it had to be unloaded.

Dublin Bus also put diversions  in place on the following routes: 25a, 25b, 25d, 66a, 66b and 67.
