The Media Unit welcomes your questions, but due to the large volume of media enquiries we receive, it is not always possible to have face-to-face and phone interviews.

We are available on weekdays during business hours (8am-6pm) and require a minimum 4 hours’ notice to respond to media enquiries.

We are not staffed weekdays 6pm-8am, on weekends or public holidays. If you have an urgent enquiry during these times, please email and we will prioritise your request.

Please check our media frequently asked questions page for available data, road safety, project or departmental information.
