aA man has been hospitalised after a serious collision involving a number of articulated lorries occurred at the entrance to the Port Tunnel this morning.
The incident happened at around 7.40am at the entrance to the Southbound section of the tunnel, and emergency services attended the scene - writes dublinlive.ie.
Traffic on the M1 was reported to be very heavy on approach not long afterwards, with 40-minute delays in the area almost an hour and a half later.
Four fire engines and two ambulances attended the scene, and the man was later removed to hospital where his condition is not known.
Dublin Fire Brigade , Gardai, and the AA all warned motorists to make alternative travel arrangements, with drivers recommended to divert to the R139 and Malahide Road or the M50 and Ballymun Road.
Among the knock-on effects of the collision was the blockage of the Swords Road from the M1, and traffic was diverted off the motorway at Junction 2 Coolock Lane.
Shortly after 11.30am, Gardai confirmed that all vehicles and a fuel spill had been cleared, and that all driving lanes of the tunnel were reopened to traffic.
Emergency services continue to use in the hard shoulder, and Gardai have advised motorists to exercise caution on approach and refrain from onlooking.
