Our new website.
What do you think?

Like our roads, we want our website to run smoothly too. We want you to get to the information you need as easily and as quickly as possible. And we certainly don't want you to get lost. That's why we need your help. We would like you to give us your feedback on our new site. The more feedback we get, the better we can make the website experience for every user. 

Why do we need a new website? 

Nothing lasts forever. The old Traffic Scotland website had been serving customers for over 20 years. As you might imagine, 20 years is a very long time for a website. Technology has moved on a lot in the last two decades, so it was time to create a new website that promised a better experience, easier to find information and enhanced functionality for all of Scotland's road users. 

Like Stranraer to Wick, it was a long journey. We involved numerous stakeholders and focus groups in its design and development, making sure user needs were front and centre from the outset. We took our time to get it right. Two whole years of research, scoping, enhancing, finessing, testing, testing, and testing. We stopped for breaks along the way. 

So what's changed and what hasn't? 

We haven't changed everything. There are plenty of aspects of the new site that feel reassuringly familiar. Things like: 

  • A single map that displays all traffic information in one place - cameras, congestion, incidents, travel and weather warnings.
  • A route checker - where you can check traffic info on a particular route and any roadworks that may impact your journey.

New features for 2023

We continue to work continuously to improve and update the site. Some of the features include: 

  • Inclusion of Low Emissions Zones on the main traffic map on the home page. 
  • Winter hub - includes info on the Gritter Tracker.
  • Traffic Cameras - improvements to the usability of the camera list planned for Spring 2023.
  • Green hub - to be launched in Spring 2023 to support travelers in making more environmentally friendly travel choices.

Mark Zuckerburg famously said that 'done is better than perfect' when talking about websites. It's a statement that accepts that a website is constantly evolving, responding to changes, user needs and feedback. Our website is no different, and your opinion can only help make it even better.

Maybe you have some strong views about what else we could add or adapt. This is your chance. Give us your feedback and help us make our website even better. The journey to an even better Traffic Scotland website starts here.
