Real Time Closures (RTC) should be used when a road is temporarily unavailable. Users are notified of the closures in real-time, from the moment the closure is added routing through these segments is prevented. Active closures are made visible in the app and Live map with alerts and candy stripes on the closed segments.
Duration of an closure is maximum 6 months. It is possible to add an additional closure for another period following on a previous closure.
The script WME Closure Details can be used to view Closure details on closures outside the editable area. The script WME Advanced Closures handles recurrent and imported closures in the Waze Map Editor.
Please enter your requests as follows:
The date an App closure is entered is used as startdate of the closure. App closures are almost always one-way closures.
To change the end date of an App closure: delete the App closure and create of a new one.
Closures can be set by editors with Level 3 and above and by the members of the Closure team.
Requests for closures within one or two days are welcome in the Slack closure channels, others can be requested on our forums: Dutch forum closures and Belgium forum closures.
