Bega Valley Shire Council is now sharing road information on the Live Traffic NSW website and app.
Council’s Director of Assets and Operations, Ian Macfarlane said Bega Valley Shire was one of 22 Councils selected by the NSW Government to publish road data on its OneRoad portal, which feeds data to Live Traffic NSW and third-party navigation apps.
“We are excited to have the opportunity to provide up-to-date road information through this new platform,” Mr Macfarlane said.
“Our road users can now visit one central location for information about traffic conditions, incidents, hazards and major events on council-managed and state roads.
“Having all this information in one place not only helps keep busy motorists moving, but it also contributes to keeping our communities safe, providing them with invaluable traffic information in times of crisis such as bushfire or flood.
“Visitors to the area will also benefit from making more informed travel decisions and being better equipped to plan and complete their journeys safely.”
OneRoad is being progressively rolled out to Local Government Areas, with priority given to communities most affected by natural disasters like floods and bushfires.
All councils across NSW will be given the opportunity to use OneRoad by 2024.
