Rolling M7 road closures announced after Storm Emma

Offaly people planning to get to work on Monday morning may face difficulties as work is continuing clearing the M7 motorway.

The Gardaí have issued a Traffic Alert for M7 Junctions 10-9 (Newbridge - Naas).

They say Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII) are currently in the process of clearing snow from the M7 between Junction 10 and Junction 9 inbound.

To facilitate this Gardai are conducting rolling road closures between Junction 10 and Junction 9. The Gardaí ask motorists travelling this route to reduce speed and exercise caution on approach.

Kildare County Council has said many roads around the county remain treacherous. Some Offaly roads remain passable by one lane only and extreme caution is advised on all routes.
