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).

Some minor updates to interstate incidents
Ratings and Reviews
Is good BUT often not updated…..
Today there was a major crash on the Hume Highway, four people died, northbound traffic will be totally blocked for hours but no mention of any accident in the app…only shows road works.
To be of any value it needs to reflect the reality of what’s happening.
Once I deleted this up from my phone because of the bugs and the unreliable information, but after a year I thought I’ll give it another chance.
I am using it on the latest Iphone and it is still as bad as it was... I can get used to the hard to navigate pages and the unexpected jumps when viewing maps, I can also manage the very frequent crashes, but the traffic information is really unreliable.. some things get updated and some don’t.. not very useful when planning a few hundred kms trip. I am back using google maps.

Notifications every 5 minutes
I downloaded the app this morning and set the route I’m planning to take to regional NSW next week, said Yes to notifications (which I very rarely do, but figured it’s important given the current flooding across much of NSW & VIC).
My route has 4 flood related incidents marked so it’s good to see that - although the tiny blue dot for water isn’t easy to see & didn’t initially register as a priority, someone unfamiliar with the area might think it’s to indicate a small township.
I received my first alert shortly after: “Trip Update - There are 3 new incidents on your saved trip”
Since then I’ve been getting the same alert EVERY 5 MINUTES. Nothing has changed at all, I keep going in & checking then re-checking & closing alerts & then more of the exact same come in. I got another alert whilst writing this 🙄
Not ideal, because now I’m going to have to turn the alerts & notifications off.
