Corridor Access and Permits
Corridor Access and Permits
For safety and security reasons, we actively manage and strictly control access to the go via network and our network corridor.
Whether you have been engaged to conduct work on the network, or are organising an event affecting one of our roads or tunnels; to conduct an activity within the go via network and Transurban Queensland leased areas you must have an approved work permit and fulfill certain safety requirements prior to gaining access.
This requirement also includes non-road activities and general access requests. Activities requiring a work permit include; public utility plant installation and maintenance, advertising signage (including signage erected on boundary fences), developer works, inspections, site surveys, ancillary works and encroachments (as per the Transport Infrastructure Act 1994), and special events (e.g. fun runs, sporting events).
If you are a third party, not engaged directly by Transurban Queensland, you must obtain approval from the Transurban Permit Manager (Tel: 07 3182 2285 or via email ATWPermits@govianetwork.com.au) prior to submitting a permit application.
View our map showing the lease plans to find out whether you need to access Transurban Queensland leased area.

Network Safety Inductions
It is also a mandatory requirement that all individuals accessing our network successfully complete our Network Safety Induction. The induction identifies risks specific to working within the go via network corridor and near high speed traffic, and outlines obligations for managing these risks. Inductions are valid for 12 months.
The only exception for these mandatory inductions for accessing our network is for Clem 7 and Legacy Way as these are under the operational control of BMS and EGIS respectively. Parties only requiring access to Legacy Way and Clem 7 tunnels are thus covered by the respective BMS and EGIS site specific inductions. To arrange tunnel inductions, please use the contact details provided for permits above.
One you have completed your induction, your NSI card will be available for collection from Transurban Queensland’s office, 7 Brandl Street, Eight Mile Plains. Please allow 7 days for the card to be ready. If you require your card sooner please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
