The launch of a Newcastle Now initiative is hoped to make navigating light rail construction and inner-city road closures easier.
Subscribers to the service will receive information on road closures, the most effective routes into the city, parking, changes to bus timetables and pedestrian access.
People can also register for real-time updates on the Newcastle Now website and also opt to receive information via email, text or Facebook Messenger.
Newcastle Now executive manager Richard Christian said "It is important to get the information out to people as soon as possible in the most timely and targeted way we can."
The initiative also aims to work with local businesses affected by light rail construction after making information sharing a priority.
"The information will help businesses respond and enable people to plan their trips into Newcastle," said Richard Christian.
