Road closures and diversions due to maintenance, planned events and accidents in particular can result in some of the worst traffic situations. If these road disruptions are overlooked or missed for any reason, travellers and other services may be left stranded with hours of wait time with the disruption often affecting miles of road network.

As growing traffic and frequency of road disruptions continue to grow, it is paramount that traffic management policies benefit all stakeholders.

This is where Idox Transport's Route Closure and Diversion, a robust temporary traffic management solution, comes in to its own. Route Closure and Diversion helps authorities to plan, create, manage and broadcast closure and diversion. It helps to improve the performance of the network by minimising the impact of any closure or diversion.
