Major traffic events (Wiki)
If a road closure is part of a larger event, it can be submitted to Waze as a Major Traffic Event, or MTE. MTEs are generally determined by the scale of the event and how many people will be impacted. The closures should be submitted using the MTE sheets provided. This way Waze is able to track the closures and help spread the word.
To receive further support from Waze (website and/or push + inbox message) for a closure, the event must be submitted through the MTE submission form below.
To notify Waze of a coming event in your area, use the MTE Submission Form. Helpful information to have for submissions are as follows:
Name of Event
Website for event
Roads which will be effected (not necessary)
Location
Start and End Date
Start and End Time (if available)
All MTE submissions are posted to the Waze Mini Site (if the mini site gives an error try refreshing the page) so that other editors in your area can find the name for an event and mark the closure consistently.
The closures for each MTE are submitted in a unique Google Sheets spreadsheet. If you need access to a particular event spreadsheet, request access in the spreadsheet and it will be granted by Waze HQ.

Hi Wazers,

I have found 3 different sources of information regarding the road closures:
Ironman website
Ironman map
Phoenix Park website
Some roads have different closure times (even 3 different times!)
Does anybody know which one is more accurate? (either you live in the area or you have a crystal ball..)

I'm just speculating here, but I'd imagine that all sources are derived from the first of those three (the Ironman website's list). The Phoenix Park closures may end at a later time because they want to have time to remove barriers and so on.

If there isn't a huge variation in the closure times (is there?) I'd be inclined to use the widest range of closure times from all sources, because we don't want to try to route a Waze user through a closed road, but it's not a disaster if we avoid sending them down a road that may already have reopened.

The Road Closure sheet has been submitted based on the widest range of closure times from the first 2 sources as I did not have the 3rd one this morning.
My eyes need some rest before I review those rows of closure data..
Any volunteer?
