WHY JOIN THE CORRIDORACCESS SERVICE?
CorridorAccess offers an end-to-end cloud solution for both contractors and road owners to collaborate and communicate on permits. It allows a member local authority or road owner that wants to protect its assets from damage and / or interruption. Asset owners become members of the CorridorAccess service by registering the location of their Road assets and will then receive notifications of any intended works lodged as an enquiry with the CorridorAccess service. By doing this, asset owners will be notified immediately when contractors or others who use CorridorAccess are planning to excavate in or around their Road assets.
Contractors use CorridorAccess because it is easy to submit a single enquiry and quickly make contact with the relevant road owner.
MAIN FEATURES OF MEMBERSHIP
CorridorAccess provides significant benefits to Road authorities and Councils as well as contractors themselves.
Request Permits through Dial Before You Dig
Contractors using a state based One-call service for Utility locate & plan requests can now automatically have permit requests delivered to participating Municipalities and Road Authorities. Contractors can view the updates on the progress of their Permit applications and messages from Municipalities via the CorridorAccess service.
Online road authority access to Permit requests
Municipalities and Road Authorities have access to an online solution, CorridorAccess, which shows all permit requests on a map and provides workflow tools to guide users through the permit approval process. CorridorAccess maintains a record of all communications between Contractor and RCA.
Structured workflow for processing requests
Permit approvals have a structured workflow including prerequisites which need to be satisfied. CorridorAccess provides the ability for each Municipality to supply the Contractor with the appropriate documentation, requirements and templates.
Customisation of required Permit Workflows
CorridorAccess allows organizations to configure the system to suit local permit requirements and workflows. Required documents are specified for each permit type and published instantly for each new request.
Traffic Management Plan (TMP) review and approval
CorridorAccess maintains a record of the Traffic Management requirements and can request that a TMP be provided by the contractor. CorridorAccess integrates Google Street view to allow for a desktop site inspection to confirm the validity of the TMP.
Permit authorities and Contractors can communicate using the CorridorAccess website to provide additional context or to seek clarification.
CorridorAccess allows organisations to decide how best to manage the permit fee payments - either through notification to their Finance department, PayPal invoicing or over the counter payments. It provides configurable options including set fees, to calculate the price automatically or manually add a price.
