Incident Response Satellite Depots Project


The Department of Transport and Main Roads  is now operating Queensland’s first Incident Response Satellite Depots (IRSD) in order to respond to traffic incidents faster and reduce congestion on state-controlled roads (as part of the government's "congestion busting" initiatives).


There are 7 satellite depots that service the motorways and major arterials throughout south-east Queensland.  The satellite depots provide storage facilities for signage and recovery equipment for emergency response crews. This allows incident response crews to clear traffic incidents faster and more efficiently, making our state-controlled roads safer and reduce traffic congestion.


The Incident Response Satellite Depots are an important part of the Queensland Government’s plan to manage and oversee the delivery of a safe, efficient and integrated transport system that supports sustainable economic, social and environmental outcomes in Queensland.
