Remarks :
  • Construction schedule was very tight & construction was carried out about five pronged junction with voluminous freight and light traffic flowing from different corridors merging at this junction.

  • Lots of underground services encountered during execution such as storm drain, water drain, sewerage lines, telecommunication cables, water supply pipelines etc. and exact location drawing of such services were non-existing.

  • Against all olds mentioned above, progress of the work was not hampered & completed without disrupting the present on going traffic & public amenities underground.

  • Tight working space was there with each packages of work, because of this and underground services present during construction, pile foundations were preferred.

  • Stringent safety measures have taken during execution & not a single accident has happened to citizens of Surat or our task force.
