Traffic Response Unit (TRU and TRU Max)

Traffic Response Units (TRUs) and TRU Max are roaming "on road" services that provide first response, quick clearance solutions for road incidents across south-east Queensland. TRUs provide basic breakdown assistance, incident clearance and traffic control services. TRU Max vehicles however are fitted with an additional vacuum pump to remove spills and road debris such as broken glass, gravel and diesel from the road.

These services are a joint initiative of the Department of Transport and Main Roads and Brisbane City Council, and are delivered by the Royal Automobile Club of Queensland.

TRUs work closely with the Queensland Police Service and other emergency services at incident scenes to keep the area safe and traffic moving.
