Live information on the number of parking spaces available in London Underground car parks, as well as improved traffic camera information, have been added to Transport for London’s data offering.
London Underground car park data features information about all 61 London Underground station car parks, including location, cost and the number of spaces. For 23 of these, a dynamic feed is available to inform people how many spaces are currently being used.
Meanwhile, as well as static images from TfL’s “JamCams”, which provide regularly updated images of the TfL Road Network across London, developers can now also access short looped videos from available TfL cameras allowing people to see how traffic is moving along particular roads to help better understand live traffic conditions. This follows a successful trial of such technology with American company Qvision throughout last year (and featured in Smart Highways).
TfL says further improvements and data feeds are planned throughout this year, including simpler access to the annual road safety data, improvement work on tunnels and further data on schemes which are modernising the road network. TfL is also investigating how to make complex fares information more accessible for developers.
