Why Membership


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 underground assets from damage and / or interruption. Asset owners become members of the beforeUdig service by registering the location of their underground assets and will then receive notifications of any intended works lodged as an enquiry with the beforeUdig service. By doing this, asset owners will be notified immediately when contractors or others who use beforeUdig are planning to excavate in or around their assets.

Contractors use CorridorAccess because it is easy to submit a single enquiry and quickly make contact with the relevant road owner.

Benefits of membership


CorridorAccess provides significant benefits to Road authorities and Councils as well as contractors themselves.

Request Permits through beforeUdig

Contractors using the beforeUdig service for Utility plan requests now automatically have permit requests delivered to participating Municipalities and Road Authorities. Contractors view updates on the progress of their Permit applications and messages from Councils via the CorridorAccess service within

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 communicates directly with the beforeUdig service and maintains a record of all communications.

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 organisations to configure the system to suit local permit requirements and workflows. Required documents are specified for each permit type and published instantly to the service 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.

Job Messaging

Permit authorities and Contractors can communicate using the beforeUdig website and CorridorAccess 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.
