QLDTraffic is the official source of live traffic and travel information from the Queensland Government. It lets you check traffic conditions and plan your journey before you drive.
Managed by the Department of Transport and Main Roads, QLDTraffic provides information on road conditions throughout Queensland, including crashes and hazards, road closures and restrictions, roadworks and special events. The app also provides access to web cameras that relay near real-time traffic imagery.
Add your favourite routes to the app, like the trip to the office or a car journey to school, and QLDTraffic will inform you of traffic issues on the way. It’ll even send you personalised push notifications if something happens on your favourite routes, so that you’ll know before you go.
· Save favourite routes and places to receive personalised traffic alerts as push notifications
· See live traffic alerts and events on a map
· Filter traffic alerts to see:
o What’s happening on your routes or around your current location
o Incidents near your calendar events (if you’ve set a location for the event)
o Crashes, flooding, and hazards
o Road closures and restrictions
o Roadworks and special events
o Traffic flow and congestion
o Traffic web cameras
· Add a route by searching for a way to drive
· Use travel mode while you’re on the move to get live traffic alerts throughout your journey
o Travel mode includes audio announcements, so you can continue to pay attention to the road.
· Add custom routes by recording your trip in travel mode
Please note: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
Bug fix for missing updates.
Ratings and Reviews
There has been no response to repeated accusations of TMR staff posting positive reviews for their own app here. Feel free to comment an answer on this one.
Developer Response ,
Hi GeekyProf, we’ve looked into it and you’re right that we have received some positive reviews from TMR staff. We have almost 9,000 employees in the department and most of them are here because they’re really into what we do. We’re guessing they’ve heard about the new app through our internal comms and, thinking they were being supportive, some of them have downloaded it and posted reviews. We encouraged people to check the app out, but no one was directed to post a review. So while it’s not a good look, we can tell you honestly that the reviews were posted by Queenslanders in good faith, and not as undercover TMR staff.
Not user friendly, no flood info
The app is clunky and very glitchy, can get the website to display flooded closed roads but not the app.
Never current. Roads can be closed for hours due to accidents and they never appear on this app.
