Massive backlog as traffic lights out on Headford Road

Traffic is heavy traffic reported on the east side of Galway City this morning as traffic lights remain out of action after Storm Elsa.

The traffic lights on the Headford Road at the Bodkin Junction are still out this morning after Galway was battered with heavy winds last night.

This is causing a severe backlog on the N84 from well before Ballinfoyle through to the Kirwan roundabout AA Roadwatch has said.

Traffic is also extremely coming in on Bothar na dTreabh from the Tuam Road junction.

On the Tuam road itself traffic is reported backed up from before Loughgeorge all the way out to Claregalway, and from Two Mile Ditch to Bothar na dTreabh.

A status orange weather warning was issued by Met Eireann for Galway and Mayo late yesterday evening which remained in place until 1am on Thursday,

Severe flooding occurred down in Salthill last night as a result of the storm, with up to 10 properties and 50 cars affected by flood waters.

Crews from the city council, Galway Fire & Rescue, and Galway Civil Defence have been out since the early hours of the morning working to clear multiple roads blocked by fallen trees.
