Roads ACT is a proud partner of the Waze - Connected Citizens Program, where Roads ACT shares its road/footpath closures and Waze drivers communicate back real-time traffic congestions and incidents through the Waze app.
A live snapshot of congestions and incidents are displayed on the map for your reference.
These reports are user generated and MUST be interpreted with caution.

Roads ACT will endeavour to use this data to support investment decisions, improve traffic network and improve safety.
