New service provides free real-time travel alerts for Kiwi drivers

The NZ Transport Agency (NZTA) has launched OnTheMove, a free, customisable travel information service designed to provide travellers with email alerts prior to their journey, about road and driving conditions, incidents and road works on New Zealand’s state highways.

NZTA Regional Traffic Operations Manager Kathryn Musgrave says the new service is a customer-friendly way for road users to check road conditions before they travel on our state highways.

“It’s all about helping our customers make smarter travel choices when planning trips on New Zealand state highways. OnTheMove will be useful for road users heading away on long trips including during holidays such as Easter, as well as for commuters and commercial drivers who travel on state highways every day,” says Ms Musgrave.

OnTheMove can be accessed from any PC or smart device that receives emails, but the NZTA is reminding subscribers to make safety their top priority and avoid the risks of being distracted behind the wheel.

“It’s unsafe and illegal to check messages or data on a mobile phone or other device while driving. If you’re driving alone, you need to check for alerts before your trip begins or during a rest stop on your journey. If you’re driving with passengers you can ask them to check for alerts during the journey, but always remember that as the driver, for safety’s sake your focus must be on the road.”

OnTheMove will send alerts about major events that may disrupt state highway traffic or require caution, based on the routes/regions and time periods users have selected. Minor incidents and general traffic congestion won’t be sent out as alerts. Some weeks subscribers may not receive any alerts and others week, particularly in winter, they may receive a lot.

OnTheMove is an addition to the NZTA’s current state highway travel information services, which also include the 0800 4HIGHWAYS (0800 44 44 49) phone line and the online service www.highwayinfo.govt.nz
