Joint trench security
Special procedures for arranging access for telecom suppliers using the Funeven joint trench ducts apply. These procedures are only to be used to arrange access to the secured ducts, and are set out below.
Routine / planned works
Access can be arranged by contacting the Management Office on 0207 544 1952
Procedure for accessing the Joint trench ducts
In advance of any access being granted for work on the estate, the Telecoms Supplier must have registered with Funeven by supplying the names and contact details of 2 (no.) authorised persons who can arrange access. These details will be held on file in the management office for reference. Any changes to these details should be notified to Funeven Management as soon as reasonable practical.
On arrival at the security access barrier to the Funeven Estate the details will be checked with the corresponding email which will have been sent to security by the Funeven management office. Security will then accompany the engineer to the relevant boxes/chambers to allow the engineer to unlock the chambers; security will then return the keys to the security hut. On completion of the works the engineer will contact security by telephone on 0207 515 1792 to witness the re-securing of the chamber.
The Funeven Site has CCTV surveillance, ANPR and 24/7 security staffing and patrols. All steps of this procedure will be entered into the security log book for our records. No Civil works or works that could result in a road closure or obstruction can be arranged or agreed by security. All such works must be by arrangement with Funeven Estate Management.
