I managed to close the N35 singlehandedly. It has a l5 travel lock.

Not sure. Was a very small road at the other side of the country.. ;-)

But I guess so. The street was red/white.

Lucky you! In the cases that you saw, did it actually prevent routing?

Recently I have seen a few and I think the amount of people needed to close a street is lowered a lot!

I would hope at least that a L6 could one-shot close something, or two L3s, or an L5 and an L1, or six L1s closing the same segment. It should not take that much corroboration to close a segment, or else closures won't ever happen. They're difficult enough to report as it is.

We all know the client isn't anywhere near forgiving enough when it comes to reporting closures. I saw a dot-matrix sign a quarter mile before an intersection that said one road coming off it was closed. Even stopped at the second block before the intersection, I could not report that right turn closed.

We have tried a couple of times to close a ramp with three champs and could rarely succeed to close it down. How often will you have three champs or more passing the same road works and taking time to close exactly the same turn? Never. So for me it just doesn't work.

I have never seen one in the wild.

It does work indeed.
But it's not really easy to use.

If you close the freeway before a junction the freeway still isn't closed.

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.

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).
