Tom Clarke Bridge, Dublin.


This morning.

Truck drivers taking part in a protest in Dublin this morning are blocking both ends of the Tom Clarke Bridge, commonly known as the East Link.

Via RTE News:

Promenade Road at the Port Tunnel is also blocked, as is the roundabout at the 3Arena and the entrance to Dublin Port.

Gardaí are advising commuters to plan for potential traffic disruption due to the protest, but the main roads leading into the city seem to be moving well, with most of the disruption currently around the docklands area.

The protest is being organised by a group which calls itself ‘The People of Ireland Against Fuel Prices’.

The ‘factory’ apparently had a capacity to launder over 2.5 million litres of fuel and is the first such find in Dublin.

According to Revenue the plant used the “relatively unsophisticated method of fuel laundering which involves filtering the fuel through cat litter”.
