Traffic is being asked to take alternative routes on the road.

Motorists outbound can go through Tallaght and Saggart, then rejoin the road at Rathcoole. Traffic travelling outbound on the N7 Naas Road is being asked to take the M50 to Tallaght (J11) or Lucan (J7) and not to take Red Cow exit.

Traffic continuing on the N7 from The Red Cow is being diverted at Newlands Cross where there are tailbacks due to the volume of traffic taking this route.
