Published 18/02/2007

There are fears of traffic chaos for commuters tomorrow morning, with the introduction of a new ban on heavy goods vehicles in Dublin.

From 7am tomorrow morning, all trucks with five or more axles will be banned from the city centre and forced to use the port tunnel instead.

Around 2,000 will now have to use the M50 to access routes to other parts of the country.
