Increase In Traffic Recorded On Main Roads At The Weekend

Traffic was up by more than a third on the country's motorways on Friday and Saturday, when compared with the Easter bank holiday weekend.

That's according to an analysis of Transport Infrastructure Ireland data by the Irish Times.

When just cars are looked at, there was a 46 per cent increase in traffic this weekend on the M6 in Westmeath and a 44 per cent jump on the M8 near Fermoy in Cork.

While the M50, between Dundrum and Sandyford, saw an increase of more than 42 per cent compared to the long weekend in April.
