This App will use your current location to give you the traffic news when and where you need it. Plan your journey, reduce congestion, lower emissions and arrive safe and less frustrated.
Official data is collected from thousands of vehicle monitors, CCTV and patrol reports to show where the Highways England network is flowing well and to keep you up-to-date with traffic incidents as they break throughout the day.
The information covers unplanned incidents such as accidents and congestion, plus lane closures and other restrictions due to improvement works. Advance notice of future essential roadworks is given wherever possible.
