An interactive online map is helping to make journeys quicker and easier for North Yorkshire's drivers.

It provides details of roadworks around the county and nationally, including closed roads and official diversion routes.

Anyone can sign up to receive e-mail alerts about works happening on routes which they use.

The map also hosts the information for a pilot scheme in which North Yorkshire County Council and local newspaper publishers Johnston Press and Newsquest have joined forces to publish statutory traffic notices online.

Details of all temporary and permanent traffic orders around the county can be found on the map, showing what is planned on different routes and giving people the opportunity to comment on proposals.
