Is Monash Freeway still backed up or have I missed the morning rush? It can be frustrating when driving or sitting in a taxi to know which route is fastest to take at different times of the day.

While Google Maps in Melbourne has long been a useful tool for planning different routes, and suggesting how long they might take when traffic becomes a factor, up until now it hasn't been able to help you make those tough decisions based on what's actually going on out there on the roads.

To turn traffic information on, click the button labelled 'Traffic' next to the 'More' button at the top left of Google Maps. The colours you'll see overlaid on the roads correspond to the speed of traffic (relative to the speed limit of the road): green is free sailing, yellow is medium congestion, red is heavy congestion, and red/black is stop-and-go traffic. The information is updated every few minutes.

The same traffic information is also available on Google Maps for mobile, so you can ask your passengers to check it out on your mobile device while you're on the go and make real time route changes based on the data.
