Sebastian Urbina, deputy minister of transport, explained that MOPT officials, mainly in the area of police and traffic engineering will be updating information on road closures, whether they are partial or total, that is then indicated on the Waze app.

The road closure information could be for different reasons, ie. construction, holidays, events, religious activities, etc.

Urbina added that the program still needs to be debugged, one of the challengers is to provide historical data, while Waze provides the information only in real-time.

For Urbina, the historical data is important for analysis and comparison of traffic flows.
