MyRoadInfo initiative is a free app providing access to all local road event information from its member councils as well as all NSW and QLD state road information. It is a single source of road knowledge for the travelling Public in those areas covered.
The MyRoadInfo website was developed in 2010 as an online information hub listing road closures and delays due to accidents, storms or rising floodwaters.
The app’s most exciting feature, which is not available on the website, is an automatic notification system.
MyRoadInfo provides updates from councils across northern NSW, and the State Government’s Roads and Maritime Services (RMS), to give people localised knowledge at their fingertips to help them make sensible decisions on the road.
Using the ‘favourites’ function, people can nominate up to ten favourite roads and receive automatic notifications should accidents, storms or flooding occur.
“The website has been very successful, but we realised the next logical step was to create a simple, free app that people could download and have with them at all times.
“It only takes a few minutes to download, but it could save you much more than that down the track.”
The MyRoadInfo app can be downloaded via the App Store for iPhones or the Google Play Store for Android devices.
If people or property are at risk, phone the SES immediately on 132 500. If you are in an emergency situation, always call 000.
