NSW launches live traffic monitoring online

The NSW Roads and Traffic Authority (RTA) has launched RTA Live. This new website provides live updates on road conditions across NSW, including road work, fires, floods, accidents as well as feeds from 67 traffic cameras across Sydney.

There's also a widget embeddable on blogs and websites to provide traffic information.

Displaying the data on Google Maps, the site is an excellent example of the use of Web 2.0 technologies in a government context.

My only suggestion for the site would be to include data for Canberra to fill the annoying ACT-sized hole in the map.
