21 September 2015 Local Roadworks Now on Myroadinfo

The popular Myroadinfo app and website is now featuring local construction works for the Coffs Harbour area, as well as updates related to accidents, storms or flooding.

 

MyRoadInfo provides updates from councils across northern NSW, plus State road authorities in NSW, Queensland and Victoria to give residents localised knowledge at their fingertips and help them make sensible decisions on the road.

 

“MyRoadInfo is becoming the go-to site for motorists on the east coast,” said Mick Raby, Council’s Director Sustainable Infrastructure.

 

“By including construction works that effect road conditions or access, we’re making the website more useful and relevant for the travelling public. At the end of the day, that’s our number one goal – to make sure our residents and motorists travelling through the area have access to accurate, up-to-date road information to get them safely from A to B.”

 

MyRoadInfo includes a free iPhone and Android app with a ‘favourites’ function so residents can check their most common routes to home and work - plus it offers media outlets print-ready, text-only alerts for easy dissemination including on-air reading during times of natural disaster.

 

The MyRoadInfo website was developed in 2009 as an online information hub following a severe flooding in Northern NSW that highlighted the need for a service that bridged council boundaries. It has since won an R.H. Dougherty Award and the Government Communications Australia national award for ‘best crisis communications’.

 

To view the site or download the app, click here or www.myroadinfo.com.au - or go to the App Store or Google play. Myroadinfo can be accessed on both PCs and any mobile device.

 

Always remember - if people or property are at risk, phone the SES immediately on 132 500. If you are in an emergency situation, always phone 000.
