Hauliers have been blocking the East Link bridge, also known as the Tom Clarke Bridge, in Dublin, in both directions this morning. Dublin City Council has said other routes in the port area have also been blocked. The HGV drivers have been protesting against rising prices of gas and fuel.
East Link toll bridge and East Wall Road were blocked with trucks and trailers.
The usually busy roundabout outside the 3Arena was also blockaded with trucks, causing the closure of North Wall Quay.
The entrance to Dublin Port and the Port Tunnel were also heavily congested.
Some truck drivers involved in the protest remained in their parked cabs while others stood in groups on the road.
Gardai on the scene attempted to manage traffic while also trying to get the protesters to move on.
Many of the vehicles carried banners with the slogan #Irishfuelprotest, with others calling for the resignation of Transport Minister Eamon Ryan.
