About this app

Live Traffic NSW provides you with real-time information about unplanned and planned incidents that affect your trips in NSW and across borders into QLD, SA, VIC and ACT.

Features include:
- Incident information for Sydney and Regional NSW including crashes, breakdowns, fires, floods, snow, public events and roadworks.
- Strategically located traffic camera images updated every 60 seconds, which you can save for quick access.
- Ability to check for incidents along a route and save your frequently travelled trips.
- Cross-border incident information from QLD, SA, VIC and ACT.
- Location of fires from NSW Rural Fire Service.
- Local road information in Northern NSW (supplied by myroadinfo.com.au).

Live Traffic NSW aims to help motorists make the best possible travel decisions that will, in turn, contribute to the safe and efficient management of our roads.

Live Traffic NSW is owned and operated by the Transport Management Centre (TMC) which monitors and manages the 18,000km NSW State road network 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

The TMC uses advanced monitoring, communication and traffic management systems to respond to and clear traffic incidents as quickly as possible, improve consistency of journey times, and provide customers with quality up-to-date information.

This app also uses data from interstate road agencies (QLD, SA, VIC and ACT), NSW Rural Fire Service, and Northern NSW local roads (myroadinfo.com.au).

We're committed to ensuring that Live Traffic NSW meets the needs of road users in NSW, and your feedback is essential. If you have any ideas, suggestions for improvement or questions about the app, please contact us by using the feedback form within the app.

Edit: Update of 16 Nov 2022 appears to have fixed the performance issues. Original: Constant crashes, lagging and freezes as you move around the map. Very poor user experience, suggest it is likely because the app cannot handle the sheer number of events listed on it (and of course there are many councils that don't participate such as my own, making the information incomplete anyway).

Hi Chris, yesterday we released an update which improves the performance issues which were caused by a significant increase in flood incidents, plus the introduction of incidents from 22 local councils. Please install the update, and if you are still having issues, please email us at livetraffic@transport.nsw.gov.au

The app is usually good, but of late has become impossible to use - I need to use the website instead. Consistently crashes on my relatively new phone, whereas before 18 months ago on a much older phone it ran perfect. Maybe it's the recent flooding events that have gummed up the works, which is unfortunate, since it's precisely the time where an app like this is needed.

Was great when it worked, and it did well for years. Latest update way too slow, seems more interested to pull in too much detail of local business names instead of letting me zoom out immediately and assess what options i have with the actual traffic/ incident situation. App either goes to a standstill for ages when zooming out, or worse, stops entirely and crashes.
