Subscribe to email alerts or RSS feeds from the Highways Agency to get the latest traffic news for England. You can choose to get information for a specific region or road about planned roadworks, congestion and other traffic incidents.

Traffic news available through email alerts and RSS feeds

You can subscribe to get the latest traffic news for England’s motorways and major A roads on the Highways Agency’s network. You can choose to get information for a whole region or a certain motorway by email alert or RSS (Really Simple Syndication) feed. You'll then receive news about incidents for that region or motorway, including:

  • planned roadworks
  • emergency roadworks
  • congestion
  • delays
  • accidents

To check which roads are on the Highways Agency's network, download a network map.

The RSS feeds and email alerts only cover traffic information for roads managed by the Highways Agency (motorways and major A roads). They don’t cover traffic in Wales, Scotland or London (inside the M25).
