Traffic updates and alerts

Traffic build-ups can happen quickly in peak travel hours and when incidents—such as crashes, dangerous weather, power outages, emergency roadworks and special events—occur.

We are committed to easing traffic congestion and clearing incidents as quickly and safely as possible. However, if you view traffic updates and alerts before heading out on Queensland’s roads, you can plan your journeys to avoid incidents and traffic build-ups.

Online traffic updates and alerts

 QLDAlert displays the tweets from all QLDTraffic Twitter accounts—so that if you do not have a Twitter account you can still view these alerts.

Over the phone traffic updates and alerts

You can call the QLDTraffic hotline to:

  • find out about traffic conditions across Queensland
  • report an incident or traffic jam.

Call 13 19 40 (24 hours, 7 days).

Never drive through floodwater

More than half of flood-related deaths are a result of driving through floodwater. Even if it looks calm, no one can predict what floodwater will do or what’s happened to the road underneath. Any amount of swift flowing water can sweep away your car, no matter what you drive. Don’t risk it.

If it’s flooded, forget it. Always have a Plan B.

Plan ahead

Don’t let road closures delay you.

Check for closed roads or changed road conditions online or by calling 13 19 40.
