Highways England Using Secure Chamber Covers

Home / News | posted on 23 01 2017

A new secure access cover system to prevent theft or sabotage of data and power cables has been installed on the current M3 Smart Motorway scheme for Highways England.

The system has been supplied by Saint Gobain PAM, and consists of an access cover fitted with a five sided allen head bolt plus a high security fabricated steel sub-unit fitted underneath it. Gary Postle, National Key Account Manager for Saint Gobain PAM said"Metal theft can be a major issue for the Highways England, not just for the cost of replacement but also for the disruption that it can cause. The ongoing consequences for a smart motorway, which relies on communication continuity, are even more serious".
