Kent Traffic and Travel
The Kent Traffic
and Travel website provides the public with live
travel information, including the location of congestion, roadworks
and variable message sign information.
Traffic cameras are also available so the public can check the
traffic situation before starting their journey. Currently, this
covers Maidstone, Canterbury and Tunbridge Wells but is being
extended to other areas.
The website is currently being developed, and may in future
include developments such as iPhone applications to allow the
public to get traffic alerts on their mobile phones.
Real-time public transport information
The Kent bus system provides real-time information at bus stops
in many parts of Kent. This allows passengers to see when their bus
is due to arrive and to be aware of any delays to their
Variable message signs
Roadside variable message signs provide a central point for
information provision and can relay information in cases of
emergencies. These are used to inform drivers about incidents on
the highways, delays and possible alternative routes.
They also display the location and number of available car
parking spaces to minimise congestion.
