About Route Scanner: Route Scanner uses live traffic information (e.g. accidents, roadworks and delays) combined with a route planner to calculate which incidents could affect that particular journey. It combines the power of Google Maps with real-time information provided by the Highways Agency using the TPEG standard. Route Scanner doesn't just look for traffic and travel updates on motorways and other major roads but throughout the road network. I wrote it because I found travel information websites clunky to use and liable to information overload - seeing every traffic incident over a whole region is generally not that helpful as you're bombarded by data with little or no relevance to your journey.
