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.

18/5/24 Very sick of the map landing in Africa since the latest update. I wasn't aware Live Traffic was a thing in Africa. Yes, my "location" is turned on. Every time I open the app I find myself in Africa. I then have to wait several minutes until the map moves to my actual location in NSW.

Hi Jane - oh dear, this was not intended! Would you mind emailing us with some more details, including what phone model you're using? I'd like our development team to investigate this issue, and push out another update if required. livetraffic@tmc.transport.nsw.gov.au

Was 1 star review in 2013. Still 1 star. The fact that it doesn't show regional road closure in time of need (fire/flood) makes it useless for trip planning. Ive travelled across the state so many times on roads that appear to be open only to find hours into the trip that roads are closed and have to back track because it's not in the app or signposted. Councils need to be able to show their own roads closed directly in this app so you can plan trips that cross multiple shires.

Extremely helpful and informative and very straight forward. . I've found the app to be an invaluable aid especially when used in conjunction with my navigation apps and has saved me a lot of abortive driving. My preferred app seemed to be very slow to alert me of road closures and the other is quick to show alternative routes but no reason why the route was changed. I've only had the app a few days but I haven't had any issues associated with peak usage.
