Which part of Colombo has the most traffic? Is the Colombo Kandy road more congested than the Colombo Negombo road? Which provincial city has the most traffic? We are in a position to give a definitive answer.

We have plotted the first 1000 traffic alerts that we have published on road.lk to produce a traffic heat map for Sri Lanka. As the number of traffic alerts for a particular location increases, it's color slowly changes from green, through yellow to red. If you home town doesn't have any overlay at all, you are one of the lucky few living in a traffic free area.
