Traffic and travel
Improve your journey by keeping track of traffic and travel information.
The following websites may help you to plan your journey:
- RAC - route planner (opens new window).
- AA route planner (opens new window).
- Highways Agency - live road and traffic updates (opens new window).
- National Rail - rail service disruptions (opens new window).
Congestion may be caused by a collision, a road incident, road works, or the movement of abnormal loads.
If there's a road collision or incident
When traffic is congested due to a road accident or incident, Thames Valley Police works with local media to keep road users up-to-date with any road problems. Road users should tune in to a local radio station to monitor problems and plan alternative routes.
Our Roads Policing department is always seeking to improve traffic flow on Thames Valley roads. Our traffic management officers work alongside local authorities to improve road layouts, and advise on planned improvements, new laws and construction, taking into consideration safety and traffic flow.
