HK Traffic Live contains the real-time traffic information from Transport Department and real-time weather information from Hong Kong Observatory. It was designed to help the general public who want to know the status of major roads.
It uses traffic snapshots captured by the closed circuit televisions (CCTV) installed at 180 locations of major roads in Hong Kong to visualise the latest traffic conditions. Also it connected to Speed map panels at five locations in the New Territories indicating the latest traffic conditions and average journey time. They will be updated every two minutes.
At the sametime, the weather is very easy to influence our traffic situation. So HK Traffic Live would like to use Hong Kong Observatory real-time weather information to help general public more effective to forecast the traffic situation.
