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.
Our new mobile site has been 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;
- Latest press statements and links to connect with us across our social media channels.
The mobile site can be found at m.highways.gov.uk from your web enabled mobile handset.
There’s no need to remember the new mobile website address — we’ll recognise you’re on a mobile when you access www.highways.gov.uk and redirect you to the mobile site, optimised for your phone. There’s also a link to direct you back to the main website if you prefer the full desktop version.
iPhone/iPad users can take advantage of our free “Live Traffic Info” app. The app allows you to check how the traffic is flowing on motorways and major A roads in England before you begin your journey. We only provide information for roads that we manage within England.
The app provides traffic information covering unplanned incidents such as accidents and congestion, plus lane closures and other restrictions due to improvement works.
You can download the free app by going to the iTunes store
See our FAQs for more information about the app.
