Welcome to our collection of traffic apps for the UK road network.

We aim to deliver a traffic app that will help you keep up-to-date on the latest traffic incidents from the major roads across the UK. Whether this is a specific road or a collection of roads you want to check, our traffic apps will help you avoid traffic en-route to your destination.

The UK Motorway Traffic News app is an incredibly useful tool featuring the latest updates on traffic from across the UK motorway network. Whether there is a disruptive road/lane closure; an accident; congestion or any other incident for that matter, you will find the latest updates here.

This is a must-have app for anyone who travels and is perfect for accessing prior to you leaving your location, in order to help ensure you avoid any problems en-route.

What you get:

• Latest (Traffic updates via RSS)
• Twitter (Traffic updates via Twitter)
• Share (Help spread the word!)
• Map (Live updates via Google Maps utilising the 'Traffic Layer' to highlight traffic flow using a highlighted line)*
• Feedback (Send your feedback to the developers)
• Mailing List (Sign up to our mailing list)
• Appdesigned4u (Link to our website)

* Map

Google Maps will either show current colour-coded traffic conditions on roads where data is available or display a message that data is unavailable. These speeds don't apply to traffic on smaller roads such as those within cities, which have lower speed limits. For roads smaller than main roads, the colours give an indication of the severity of the traffic. Green means that traffic conditions are good, yellow means fair, and red or red/black means poor traffic conditions.

Please note that you may need to apply the 'Traffic' layer within Google Maps to enable this feature. This is easily achievable by simply selecting the 'Settings' feature and clicking on 'Traffic'.
Important Information:

For obvious safety reasons, please refrain from using this app whilst in the control of a vehicle. This is understandably for your own safety and the safety of others.

Please note that this app requires the use of a stable connection to the internet to update the various in-app features.

We have made every effort to ensure the in-app features apply to the specific road/s in question. However, from time to time there may be other unrelated information included.

All of the traffic feeds in this app are reliant on the various sources keeping these up-to-date. Please understand that we have no control over this and we simply can only advise our users to try the in-app feature at a later date/time to see if the applicable feature has been updated.

Please understand that this app utilises various advertising in the form of banners and various page links to external sites. Although many of the adverts are not related to the app itself, they have been included to help support the ongoing development of the app. Please view our other related apps in the app store (if available) that do not include any advertisements, and may instead include extra features! There will typically be a small extra charge for an ad-free higher specification version.

If you do experience any issues with this app, please contact us using the 'Feedback' facility in the app rather than leaving us a negative star rating and/or review. We will always try to endeavour to fix a problem in the app for the benefit of all of our users.

Finally, if you do like our app, please be so kind to leave us a high star rating and a review. We greatly appreciate your support!


This app is in no way associated to any of transport organisations used in this app in the UK or beyond. All of the feeds included are the property of their respectful owners, and this app simply serves the purpose of directing the user to that specific source.

The RSS traffic feeds utilised are provided by the Highways Agency ( and are freely available to use for commercial purposes.

Kris Baxter

Misses major incidents Scrolled through 100 incidents and no mention of the M11 southbound closure after J7. My son is stuck with his wife and 2 children having moved 2 miles in 3 hours, how does that not make the top of latest reports? useless application!

Simon Smith

Jonathan Koscik

Sorry, but very limited Link to cams in my browser (don't need this app then), no map (Google does this), and I would need to know from text updates where this traffic is (maybe have this overlay on a map?)

David Kenyon

Utter crap !!! Just down loaded this. Took me just 10 seconds to uninstall it. Don't waste your time not worth even one star. But I have to put one to post this :(

Andrew Ditchfield

Fantastic app Brilliant app keeps you up to date with motorways news. Even better when they tell you what time the traffic will move in a queue

A Google User

Brilliant app, helpful with loads of updates across motorways! 5 stars Great app!

Mia Armstrong

Killed my Battery As soon as I downloaded this my battery life deteriorated significantly and my phone wouldn't last 1/2 a day so I guess it is doing something undesirable in the background. Uninstalled and now my phone battery life is restored.

A Google User

Crap... Don't bother it mainly opens links in your browser to traffic sites. No location base etc and bizarre permissions.

shazia ahmad

Needs a search function Takes far too long to find the motorway and junction you're interested in...jam probably finished by the time you find it!

Steven Beard

SPAM I have had this app installed for several months, but now it has started sending out spam adverts. 3 messages about vacuum cleaners received in one day! Now uninstalled.

Kirsty Weaver

Needs more development. Too many external links, needs more in-app functionality. Plus, the ads are annoying as they refresh the entire page and not just the banner ad. With more development I would install again but for now I'm looking elsewhere.

Darell Cutter

It's a good app for road incidents

Andy Clegg

Pete Simpson

Terrible Don't trust it one little bit...
