Statistics shows that half of traffic congestion is caused by temporary disruptions like accidents. These events have dramatic impact on road network availability and cause huge delays for commuters. Also, they are usually unexpected and hard to manage by traffic authorities. State-of-the-art navigation systems started to provide real-time information about traffic conditions to help users make better routing decisions. However, traffic in the road network changes rapidly and the advice calculated now may not be valid after few minutes. This is especially cr..
