Leicester City Traffic on Google Maps

Leicester Live Traffic & Travel Map

Leicester City Council in the UK have produced a Google Map to provide live traffic information for the city of Leicester and surrounding towns.

Using the Incidents and Roadworks tab it it is possible to view all the local hold-ups affecting traffic. It is also possible to view all of the city's traffic cams directly from the map to view current road conditions. The map also contains information on all the city's car parks, including how many parking spaces are currently available.

Public transport users can use the map to find the nearest bus stops and to view live departure times of buses (where available).

All-in-all the map provides a very comprehensive service for Leicester drivers and bus users but the map does have one glaring omission. The Leicester Live Traffic and Travel Map doesn't include the Google Maps API Traffic Layer.
