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.
