The Traffic Management Centre (TMC) monitors the county’s road network and reports any variations to the traffic flow, we refer to these as ‘incidents’. We use the term ‘incident’ to describe something that has happened on the County’s road network which has an impact (of varying degrees) on usual traffic flows. This could include, for example, a Road Traffic Collision, a burst water main or temporary traffic lights for road works.
We are using a new web-based system to log and display these incidents in both map and report formats.
This system can be viewed by visiting; https://cadence247-ccc.controller.cityscience.com/
The TMC responded to 109 incidents on the road network throughout Cambridgeshire in June covering 22 weekdays. This is an increase to May and that of June 2022. Please see the table below which illustrates the number of incidents over the last 6 months, compared to the same period last year;

We have now completed uploading all the historic data from 2018 -2023 onto google maps which you can find via the links below. Not all of March’s has been uploaded yet, at the time of sending these we may not have entirely completed the previous months but please bear with us, they will be rolled out in the month following together with this email. If you have any queries or feedback, please do not hesitate to contact us at Tmc@cambridgeshire.gov.uk
Following on from the latest update of the City Science system where we record our incidents, please be aware that when first opening the application it will now default to only showing you the last 28 days of incidents. We found performance of the controller page was struggling when showing the full history. If you want to revert to the old view, you can use the Timespan dropdown at the top of the sidebar and clear the “From” date (the actual clearing procedure is browser dependent, but it should be along the lines of clicking the date input, clicking “Clear” and then “Apply”).
