Our system connects to the Roads and Maritime Services to retrieve travel time information for the M1 Pacific Motorway (F3 Freeway). This system calculates how long it takes to travel between each major interchange by reading e-tags in vehicles. If there is a sustained delay higher than 13 minutes which lasts for 10 minutes or longer, our system will issue an alert to let you know there is a delay. Our system will also let you know when the delay has fallen under 8 minutes and cancel the alert. The travel time system only operates when there are enough cars on the road to calculate an average travel time (generally between 4am and 10pm).
Travel Time Table & Line Chart
Our website features a travel time table which details the Northbound and Southbound travel times on the freeway. It allows you to calculate the duration of your journey and allows traffic reporters to determine the location of a delay. Also, a line chart shows you determine the travel time history from the last 24-hours.
The most recent incidents are displayed on the front page of our website, we retrieve this information from the NSW Transport Management Centre. The list also indicates if the incident is an ACTIVE ALERT or if it has been RESOLVED. We store a list of ALL incidents on our Alert History page. There is a MAP hyperlink beside each incident allowing you to view a mapped location of the incident.
