Transport Weather Manager

The smart, responsive successor to OpenRoad

Transport Weather ManagerTM (TWM) is our new online weather management service. TWM provides accurate weather and operations management information within a responsive design system, so you can make informed treatment decisions to keep road networks open and safe.

We have worked closely with industry stakeholders to inform the design and development approach. We recognise the challenges that our road customers face and so together, we have developed a system that will aid decision-making and enable users to retain information for audit/legal purposes. With a refreshed visual display and easier access to key information, users will find TWM to be a valuable support tool.
