I could really use a PIO database of roadworks in my area. Idealy these could be avoided when plotting course in much the same way toll roads can be avoided etc.
How can I create a POI file so that I could avoid the points in it? Do I just call it "Traffic", and select to avoid traffic?
(In Melbourne we do not have a fm traffic data service, so this function cannot be used here)
I could create a poi file each week for planned roadworks as listed by Vicroads (metro and country). Would this sort of thing be of interest to others?

Good idea. You can create and manage that POI file here.

Great idea - particularly if you can link the roadworks to a speed warning. Roadworks seem to pay for themselves in speeding fines for unwary drivers

While I agree with your request, however, it paused another question, Has anyone compiled a Pedestrians Crossings POI in Australia yet?

wouldnt a roadwork poi need to be updated constantly dont see how its accurate but i guess if someone wanted to put the time in daily to do it it would be possible.

I can see how it would be useful for longer road occupations like additional lanes in freeways, or grade separations of level crossings.

These can often take months or somtimes years.

Major roadworks can run for months and are planned a year in advance. It would be reasonable to incorporate them - I'd certainly use them

Council should contact satnav vendors, ideally within 24 hour of start/completion of major roadworks.
