Scottish Road Works Online
This Google Maps mashup from the Scottish Road Works Commissioner has been designed to allow the public easy access to real time information about ongoing road works anywhere in Scotland. Users are able to find out how long the works are expected to last, which organisation is carrying out the works and contact details for that organisation.
Road works are shown on the map by coloured markers to indicate the degree of impact the road works are expected to have on traffic. It is possible to search the map by area and date. Which means users are able to check planned roadworks for future journeys.
This is a great example of how governments can share public data in an informative and useful way. More please!
