Ice danger closes road overnight

Icy road conditions are causing havoc for motorists who are using the N11 Wexford- Dublin road with numerous collisions reported.

Gardai were forced to close the motorway southbound to allow emergency services to get to a multi-vehicle collision.

Temperatures overnight dipped to well below zero resulting in treacherous conditions nationwide but particularly in Co Wicklow.

One motorist described the N11 to the Herald this morning as “being like glass”.

The road has reopened Southbound but there are major delays going northbound as the motorway has been restricted to one lane.

The AA is reporting hourlong tailbacks from the Glen of the Downs to the scene of the accident.
