Traffic on the motorway this afternoon between Kill and Johnstown
Motorists heading south face long traffic delays this evening. Traffic is moving, albeit at a crawl on the outskirts of Naas back towards Johnstown.
The sheer volume of traffic is forcing motorists to drive well within the driving limit on the N7.
These delays are accentuated on the old Naas bypass which is being widened to three lanes and is the subject of a 60kph speed limit.
It’s unlikely many motorists will be able to exceed this limit until the late evening at least on this the first public holiday weekend - even if they wanted to .
Traffic is much moving much more freely in the direction of Dublin.
There a steady trickle of southbound traffic moving throughtrhe villages of Kill and Johnstown as some drivers turn off the N7.
