Volumes are expected to peak this Sunday, and again next weekend before schools re-open for the first term of the new year.

If possible, N3TC recommends that you plan your travels outside of peak times. High traffic volumes often lead to congestion and delays, and place additional demands on drivers and emergency resources.

N3TC encourages travellers to heed all warning signs and take every precaution to stay safe on the road.

Updates on route and travel conditions for the N3 Toll Route can be obtained from N3TC’s 24-hour helpline on 0800 63 4357 or by following N3TC on Twitter @N3Route.
