Keeping traffic moving in all weather conditions

Weather is a key player in all forms of road transport, be it private, public or freight, safety and economic factors are directly affected by the weather. Highway Maintenance Providers, Local Government Areas (LGAs), Autonomous Car Producers and Logistics Companies use weather data from UBIMET to plan their operations, to clear roads and prevent accidents.

Road Transport & Maintenance Weather Challenges:

Air temperature and humidity

Impacts: road treatment and construction/maintenance planning.

Wind speed

Impacts: driver visibility, vehicle stability, reduces traffic speed and increases the risk of highway obstructions and reducing highway capacity.


Impacts: driver visibility, vehicle traction, reduces traffic speed, increases stopping distances and impacts maintenance/construction planning.


Impacts: driver visibility and reduces traffic speed.

Water level

Impacts: Traffic speed, stopping distance, reduction in road capacity, impacts maintenance/construction planning.

Road Condition + temperature

Impacts: Road friction, vehicle performance, route choices, stopping distances, reduces traffic speed and impacts maintenance/construction planning.

Reoccuring weather questions:

  • Will extreme weather impact traffic?
  • Do we need to stop maintenance because of the weather?
  • Will critical roads be flooded?
  • Whether and when seasonal services will be required
  • Will ice cause disruptions?
