Mobile services

We now pro­vide a range of mobile ser­vices specif­i­cally designed to allow our online cus­tomers to stay in touch with our lat­est infor­ma­tion and traf­fic updates on the move. Where delays occur, we want to make sure that you can access and respond to infor­ma­tion quickly.

Mobile website

Our mobile site has been updated and opti­mised for use on all mobile plat­forms and tablets, pro­vid­ing reg­u­lar updates about the sta­tus of our road net­work and pro­vid­ing the best pos­si­ble expe­ri­ence to users access­ing our infor­ma­tion on smaller screens.

The mobile site pro­vides access to the fol­low­ing key infor­ma­tion services:

  • Traf­fic break­ing news and live updates to inci­dents as soon as they appear across our road network
  • Cur­rent and planned road­works listed by road, region and county
  • User loca­tion fea­ture pro­vid­ing tar­get­ted infor­ma­tion based upon your cur­rent net­work location
  • Motor­way Traf­fic Flow pro­vides real-time aver­age speed infor­ma­tion between junc­tions on our motorways
  • CCTV Images pro­vide sta­tic images from CCTV cam­eras across our network

The mobile site can be found at from your web-enabled mobile handset.

iPhone/Android app

Check how the traf­fic is flow­ing on motor­ways and major A roads in Eng­land with offi­cial infor­ma­tion live from the High­ways England National Traf­fic Con­trol Centre.

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.
