Archant, publisher of London24.com, has partnered with MyCityWay to provide this discovery tool which will help locals, tourists and business travellers alike.

The mini-apps within MyCityWayLondon24 lets you check up-to-the minute traffic feeds with live camera images of London's busiest road intersections.
