The Traffic Line service on 2700 closed on 5th September 2019 as people are using other navigation and traffic alert services.

Using your smartphone to check traffic.

These are the most popular navigation and traffic services that you can download for free to use on your smartphone:

google.com/maps

apple.com/uk/ios/maps/

waze.com

They’ll recommend the fastest route for your journey while you’re on the move and include the latest traffic information.

How can I check motorway and local traffic information if I don’t have a smartphone?

Most car radios have two features that you can use to help you plan your route and avoid traffic jams. There’s a feature you can set up called TA (Traffic Announcements), which changes the channel to regular traffic reports whenever they’re broadcast. Or you can use TP (Traffic Programme), which helps you find only the radio stations that regularly broadcast traffic reports.
