What is a Corridor Access Request (CAR)
Corridor Access Requests (CARs) are requests to corridor managers by utility operators, their contractors, or other applicants such as event organisers to access the Road corridor. Access to the corridor is required to make changes to electricity, gas, telecommunications, water, wastewater and postal infrastructure and for events such as Santa Parades and Fun Runs.
RAMM Software Ltd created CAR Manager so that Road Controlling Authorities (RCAs) could manage CARs using modern software able to access their RAMM database where useful.
Submitica and CAR Manager
If CAR Manager is for the CAR managers at the RCAs, Submitica is for the applicants whether utility operators, contractors or event organisers.
The beauty of pairing CAR Manager with Submitica is that they share the same database. So they can interact seamlessly.
Designed to the Code and by the Industry
Submitica, like CAR Manager was created after requests from the industry requests and includes features requested by RCAs and also by the utility operators and contractors who make CAR Applications.
