Traffic Radio


Traffic Radio

Traffic Radio is a digital radio station based in the United Kingdom.

It is a 24 hour rolling traffic and travel service for motorways and major roads in England, run for the Highways Agency by Global Traffic Network.

Traffic Radio is on DAB digital radio and via the internet. It is available 24 hours a day, every day of the year and is updated every 10 minutes at busy times. It offers regional traffic news, depending on which part of the country people are listening, as well as national headlines. The information comes from the National Traffic Control Centre, which has access to over 1,000 CCTV cameras and 3,750 road sensors, as well as information from the Highways Agency's seven regional control centres.

Traffic Radio is not designed as a competitor to local radio stations in the UK, many of whom provide travel information. It is a continuous spoken information service meaning people can quickly switch on for the latest traffic information before switching back to whichever station they were listening to.
