What technologies do you possess / use that are similar to the innovative all-in-one response vehicle that can stop and direct motorway traffic after incidents – then clean up spillages and repair the road afterwards.

For further information about the stated process, please see:


1. provide a 2019 example of the technology being used with costs (but personal information redacted) i.e. the attendance records, times, events and ultimate breakdown of charges for the attendance, spill repair technique involved to departure and advise:

a. When was the process incepted?
b. What problems/issues have the process given rise to if any?
c. What reduction is road-surfacing has been achieved?
d. What savings have this process achieved?

If you are not the appropriate authority i.e. you do not hold this information, please could you advise to whom I should direct my request

Dear Mr Swift,


Unfortunately the Northern Territory (NT) does not have or use the
vehicles you have referenced.


Darwin City being the major populated are of the NT (approximately 120
thousand people), has the largest arterial road called Tigger Brennan
Drive, and this is not categorised as a Motorway.


The department contract out the services that respond to incidents on our
roads, and the vehicle used is four wheel drive.


That is all the information I can provide to you informally, however If
you wish to lodge a formal FOI request to this department a $30
application fee is required and further charges may apply for processing
the application.


For further details on how to lodge a formal FOI request, please follow
the link to the Information Commissioner site [1]here.


If you have any further queries please don’t hesitate to contact me.
