A woman, aged in her 80s, was struck by a car on the southbound carriageway of the N11, close to Cabinteely village, shortly before 1pm this afternoon.
Her body was taken to St Columcille’s Hospital, Loughlinstown where a post-mortem examination is due to take place.
The N11 southbound carriageway has been closed at Cornelscourt.
The N11 Stillorgan Rd remains closed outbound at Cabinteely as emergency services deal with a fatal collision. Motorists travelling out of the city are advised to divert at Brewery Rd or Leopardstown Rd to avoid heavy traffic. Traffic is very heavy on approach from both directions, particularly outbound traffic from after Foxrock Church. It’s slow on Kill Lane heading away from the Stillorgan Rd towards Baker’s Corner. It’s slow both ways on Johnstown Rd and it’s slow approaching Stillorgan Rd on the Newtown Park Rd. It’s slow too heading away from the Stillorgan Rd on the Leopardstown Rd.
