Live traffic camera images (CCTV)
Our live traffic camera images feed ('Jam Cams') gives you a bird's eye view of what's happening on London's streets. It provides images from over 700 cameras across the Capital, providing an up-to-date view of traffic at key locations.
All images are TfL branded, telling users they're from an official source. The images are date and time stamped and refreshed every three minutes - sometimes more often.
All images have a location description. Individual feeds may be interrupted if there's a system fault or if we're servicing a camera.
Note that images are not captured when a camera is in use for managing traffic, when a camera is being maintained or in the event of a camera or system fault.
If a new camera is added as a Jam Cam, or a camera is removed, it will vanish from the XML feed. As such, it is advised that developers periodically parse this XML, since it may change.
