    Hey,

    I'm wondering, what's the traffic at rush hour (in for 9am) on the M50-Soutbound nowadays since most business's are opened now?

    Will be commuting from Blanch to Dundrum.

    Is it as bad as it was before lockdown? Google Maps is giving me some ridiculously quick times so I'm not sure if I should believe it.

    You will see slighly lower than normal traffic levels from Blanch until Firhouse 80-100kph possible.Though around 9am it should be easing off.Traffic is heavier Northbound from Dundrum onwards.Returning home you will meet heavier traffic but it is moving at 70-80kph.

    tiitraffic.ie has the real time measured journey times. Have a look at that Monday or Tuesday at rush hour and you'll get the best info.

    Good to hear. Roughly how long does it take from Blanch to Firhouse? All I remember is a lot of stop-start traffic up til about J12. Particularly between J6 and J7(Lucan).
