Bangalore traffic web updates

Bumped into this site which shows the Bangalore traffic status online. And that too, it claims to be LIVE. But I see some amout of delay though. The site is promising and helpful. It divides the city into zones and based on that one can get the status of traffic as smooth, slow or delay with identifiable color codes. The map to the left also displays the location with traffic status in dots of green, orange or red. There is also the satellite view option but I would suggest to better use the simple map option as that is much more easy to read. The images for the maps are pulled out from Google maps and so anyone familiar with Google maps will be able to efficiently use this neat tool.

Its really cool. Additionally one can get directions to go from one end of the city to another showing the route graphically as well as text along with distance. There’s also an option of getting traffic updates through SMS. Haven’t tried out this feature though.

Check out http://traffic.mapunity.org to get a hang of it.
