Is it? I wish it would.

It does, but it is a rare to see working because it takes more than one user to close major roadways. A single user only has so much "power" and can't close major roads with a single report. We'd have a huge mess if one person could close major roadways during rush hour.

Perth City to Surf still showing closures at rush hour this evening.

Also noticed the map seemed to have gone back a few edits around Elizabeth Quay area.

There are two systems that are already working - 1) the in-app closure feature and 2) the Traffic Events Center explained in the first post in this thread.

Please note that events submitted to the Traffic Events Center take time to process and be added to the system (it's not automatic yet).

These closures are not limited to tile updates, and does support things like 8pm on Friday through 5am on Monday. Please make it clear that it is a continious closure when you are submitting it (so they do one continuous closures instead of a repeating closure that would close the road from 8pm to 5am the next morning for Friday night, Saturday night & Sunday night).

Several of us have asked use to have them change that & allow date/time entry for each closure.

I'll take a look at what you've submitted & PM orit_y (Waze staffer who made the original post) to make sure they do it correctly. They may email your directly about this to verify things...

Example: Here in Bogotá Colombia we always close on sundays some specific main roads in order to let the people use them (By bike, walking, running, skating and so on) from 7am to 2pm.
No, there is another system for these reoccurring closures that is currently being beta tested. If you can get the info to a local editor with access to the beta version of WME they can add these restrictions and they will go live to the routing servers on the next tile build.

When there's a monday holiday in Colombia, there's a special operation for the people that return to the city and some roads are close until 6pm.Is there a way to specify that behaviour even if a user is not able to be there to report the closure ? (There's a big chance that most users are not able to get there on time to report the road closed).
The system mentioned above does not support holidays at this time.

During one of our managed events the local time zone, anything else wouldn't make sense. But i would mention the time zone to be sure.
