TfL Live Traffic Cameras

FEBRUARY 2010  Transport

Average: 3.6 (60 votes)

The live traffic camera feed provides images from 177 cameras at key sites across the Capital, showing what's happening on London's streets.

All images are TfL branded, have a location description, and date and time-stamp. They are refreshed at least every three minutes.

Individual feeds may be interrupted if there is a system fault or if a camera is being serviced.

Images are not captured when a camera is in use for managing traffic, when a camera is being maintained or in the event of a camera or system fault.

Some ideas for re-use include:

-Freight or delivery services could use the live feed to follow traffic  traffic conditions and plan routes accordingly
-Radio stations could add a live camera feed to a traffic news page
-Organisations with staff intranets could add the traffic camera feed so people can plan their journeys home

This feed is provided by Transport for London.

The BBC use TFL camera images for the live camera feeds on their website. Visit to the BBC website to see live camera images.

Just wanted to thank tfl. They've been incredible helpful and generous enabling access to this dataset.

Recently London Jamcams (for iPhone) was featured in the Sunday Time World's Top 500 apps. This app, available on iTunes uses this exact dataset.


So thank again. M
