Dodan Nallah Arch Bridge
Built in scenic mountain ranges and snow-capped peaks to the order of the Himachal Pradesh PWD, this open-spandrel concrete arch bridge lies near Dharamsala in the Kangra Division. Bridge aesthetics was one ol the major concerns during the evolution of the conceptual design and in selecting the thickness, disposition and proportions of the concrete elements The high embankments on either side of the bridge induce pressures on abutments corresponding to 20m earth fill To affect overall economies in the 40 m effective span arch bridge all the main structural elements (i e arch, spandrel columns, deck slab and abutment walls) have been made monolithic Though this induces complications in structural analysis, aspects of durability and maintenance-free service conditions are heightened considerably as a result.

FOB AT BARAPULLA: COMMONWEALTH GAMES-2010, NEW DELHI
Commissioned by the PWD Government of Delhi for the Commonwealth Games (CWG 2010), the elegant design of Barapulla Elevated Corridor was envisaged as a dedicated signal-free access to transport participants from the Games Village to the Main Venue (Jawahar Lal Nehru Stadium). Located along the existing Barapulla Nallah drain, the 4.5 km long viaduct consisting of 2 separate structures of 10m width each for the up and down traffic has an important legacy value for the east-west traffic.
The innovative design concept was geared for high speed construction (time available: 20 months) using precast prestressed segmental techniques (no. of segments 3000) for most of the alignment including obligatory spans (upto 85.0 m). Standardisation was the key to cost-optimisation while decreasing the expansion joints in the deck led to increased riding comfort. Flexibility in design for accommodating modifications in alignment, span arrangement and foundation configuration contributed greatly in avoiding relocation of underground and overhead utilities.
Delhi is a city of archeological monuments and a highly sensitive approach is required to be taken for their preservation. Each of the major crossings presented difficult challenges. For instance, the block-time for the Northern Railway tracks was limited to a mere 2 hours on alternate days, while the deck level had to be raised to 20m to provide an uninterrupted view of the Khan-i-Khana Tomb on Mathura Road. Sharp curvatures and skew crossing characterised the alignment to avoid crossings above the ancient Barapulla Bridge and to ensure that the elevated corridor can be built without showing on shutting down traffic.

CPWD Director General Award of Excellence (2009-10) First Prize
Mukerba Chowk Traffic Interchange, Delhi
Built by the Public Works Department, NCT of Delhi, the gigantic traffic interchange at Mukerba Chowk, is located on the outskirts of Delhi. This complex junction facilitates signal-free movements in all directions at the intersection of the historic Grand Trunk Road (National Highway No. 1) and the Outer Ring Road. Traffic studies (year 2000), revealed that the mixed traffic had reached 3, 30,000 PCUs/day making it the most heavily trafficked junction in the country.
The path-breaking 8-lane main flyover consists of a continuous steel box girder (B1) with a composite concrete slab. The superstructure has been widened to 10-lanes to incorporate bus-stops (B4) at deck level that cater to facilities like ramps, stairs and escalators for vertical movement and under-bridges for cross-overs for passengers.
The aesthetically designed slip road and loop structures are of integral concrete bridge construction, allowing for the elimination of bearings and expansion joints. The structures have specially designed features for earthquake resistance (B2) as well as those that cater to poor soil conditions that have a high liquefaction potential.
The Mukerba Chowk intersection which was conceived as a green project threw up design challenges in the form of the city’s garbage dump and several nallahs existing at the site. Use of flyash, blast furnace slag cement, segregation of motorized vehicles from cyclists and pedestrians, integrating the existing features at site (archeological monument, burial ground, and sub-station) and creation of innovative and aesthetic structural designs (B3) were some of the highlights of project.

MADHUBAN CHOWK UNDERPASS, NEW DELHI
MADHUBAN CHOWK UNDERPASS, NEW DELHI
At the intersection of Outer Ring Road and Road no.41 at Madhuban Chowk, New Delhi, two major fast-track projects were constructed simultaneously. A vehicular underpass was opted for Outer Ring Road by DTTDC while the viaduct of the DMRC runs perpendicular to it. Sequencing of activities for these two fast track projects in a restricted area, use of appropriate construction techniques and limited disturbance to existing traffic during construction were some of the problems overcome by innovative designs.
The 6-lane 555m long underpass for DTTDC is constituted by 18m deep diaphragm walls on the sides connected by a base-slab. Permanent prestressed soil-anchors are used to stabilize the structure against uplift caused by the high water table in the area. A 60m long prestressed voided slab monolithic with the diaphragm walls spans across 24m width of the underpass to facilitate traffic movement at ground level. Of the several special viaduct structures of Line 1 of DMRC, one of them is the 2-track, 3-span (38.5m + 55m + 38.5m) bridge constructed by free-cantilevering technique, ensuring no disturbance to traffic at ground level. The central span straddles across the underpass with piers supported on the central verge of Road no.41. Special attention was devoted to aesthetics, durability and earthquake resistance.

MADHUBAN CHOWK UNDERPASS, NEW DELHI
UNDERPASS AT ROTARY NEAR DOMESTIC AIRPORT ALONG ROAD CONNECTING TO DWARKA, NEW DELHI
UNDERPASS AT ROTARY NEAR DOMESTIC AIRPORT ALONG ROAD CONNECTING TO DWARKA, NEW DELHI
Heavy traffic congestion existed at the Rotary outside the Domestic Airport, Delhi. It was found that majority of the congestion was due to the large traffic volume plying between Delhi & Gurgaon going towards Dwarka. A one way 600m long underpass from Delhi (Dhaula Kuan) and Gurgaon towards Dwarka, below the existing Rotary was thus concerned (Fig 21). This was a most fortunate selection as an elevated structure in the vicinity of the terminal building would have spoilt the cityscape. Sometimes it is infinitely better to be unobtrusive and subtle in matters of infrastructure. This was one such occasion.
A combination of Diaphragm Wall (D-Wall) and Retaining Wall was made to find an optimum of construction time and cost and yet feasible construction. Fig 22 shows diaphragm wall with temporary bracing which was required before casting of base slab for the permanent connection. At certain places, underlying rock is comparatively shallow, though still below the base slab of the underpass. A specialised design detailing had to be prepared to tackle such locations. The covered portion below the rotary is 120m long. Adequate arrangements for drainage of the underpass have been made, by way of installing several submersible pumps (with 50% redundancy), controlled through logical controller and fully backed up with DG Sets.
Special highway geometrics were required to merge NH-8 with the underpass due to the limited land availability at the Dhaula Kuan end.

Precast Concrete Segmental Flyovers of Delhi
Special attention was devoted to the development of visually arresting aesthetic features of the project. Carefully shaped spine beams of the superstructure resting on elliptical piers of fluted texture were the main highlights.
The 6-lane superstructure consists of precast prestressed segmental construction of five continuous spans of 26.1 + 31.05 + 41.4 + 31.05 + 26.1 m. The precast segments were manufactured at a centralised casting facility located in the contractor's compound from where they were transported to site and erected in position by light assembly trusses.
Apart from fast track construction (16 weeks per flyover for the superstructure) other environment friendly aspects included: minimising on-site concreting and causing no disturbance to traffic during construction.

Dhaula Kuan Interchange, New Delhi
The rather complicated grade-separated interchange at Dhaula Kuan represents the gateway to the Capital city from the airport. Due to its sheer size and importance in sociological terms, a bridge looms prominently in public consciousness and these facts cannot be ignored. Disregarding its harmonious integration into the natural or built environment can have significant repercussions, the detrimental effects of which are always significant. It has been found that at later stages, the corrections from aesthetic considerations of badly conceived solutions can only result in marginal or cosmetic improvement.
Graceful and aesthetic bridges elicit a sense of appreciation from lovers of natural beauty. Smooth and elegant flyovers earn the unmitigated gratitude of millions of urban dwellers enhancing quality of life in the cities.
The main straight bridge with 2x3-lane carriageways with footpaths are shaped with tapered wings to accentuate its slim profile. The deck consists of voided slab, 4-span continuous construction. The bold piers are dimensioned to give a sense of stability and strength. The structurally complex shapes of the skew-cum-curved continuous decks were the highlights of the structural design

To alleviate the heavy congestion of traffic at the ITO crossing, two clover leaves and slip roads have been constructed connecting Vikas Marg at the lower level to the IP Estate Flyover (on Ring Road) at the upper level. The total length of the elevated clover leaves is 513.0m.
A sleek low-profile continuous 4-span structure (4 x 25.0 = 100.0m) with a prestressed voided slab section for each structure was selected after careful analysis of several alternatives. Through innovative concepts it was possible to incorporate the following unusual features :
. Sharply curved geometrics (radius 48.0m) to suit site constraints which generated tilted deck with cross-slopes of upto 7%
. Low height of piers, which precluded the use of pier cap from aesthetic considerations
. Reduction in superstructure depth so as to achieve a span/depth ratio of 20:1 to create a slim deck
. Connection of Clover Leaves with the existing flyover by a separate structural element which integrated the two structures architecturally

Precast Pre-tensioned girders integrated with cast-in-situ deck slabs and diaphragms were used on a large scale for the superstructure of the 2 x 4 lanes of the access-controlled expressway incorporating several grade separators aggregating 11 km of stilted structure.
Constructed to the orders of the National Highways Authority of India, this BOT project is characterized by high quality, superior form-finished concrete with an eye on simple structural elegance, durability, economy and standardization.
The requirement of precasting 1800 girders was met through a casting yard comprising 14 beds and a process of steam-curing to obtain a time cycle of upto 4 girders a day. Specially fabricated low-bedded trailors were deployed to transport the 30 m long girders (weight 60 t) to the site and a pair of Goliath cranes operating in tandem was then used for their erection (A). A pair of 150t tyre-mounted mobile cranes was also engaged at designated locations for the purpose (B). The erection methodologies are shown in the insets.
Special highlights of the designs were the “integral” sharply curved (radius 50 m) prestressed cast-in-situ box girder continuous decks for the “horse-shoe loop” connections towards the international (C and D) and domestic terminals of the IGI airport of Delhi. Also, post-tensioned precast girders of 40 m length (weight 120t) were employed for obligatory spans at major crossings. The concept of hanging girders was exploited advantageously to maximize road usage for ground level traffic (photos opposite).

The structural system consists of simply supported spans resting on very deep pile foundations. The superstructure has been re-engineered to make it construction friendly by employing precast segmental post tensioned girders. The girders are precast in parts and spliced together with the aid of prestressing on top of assembly girders. This greatly facilitated transportation by pontoon and handling of the girders by floating crane in the creek.

BARAPULLA ELEVATED CORRIDOR: COMMONWEALTH GAMES-2010, NEW DELHI
Commissioned by the PWD Government of Delhi for the Commonwealth Games (CWG 2010), the elegant design of Barapulla Elevated Corridor was envisaged as a dedicated signal-free access to transport participants from the Games Village to the Main Venue (Jawahar Lal Nehru Stadium). Located along the existing Barapulla Nallah drain, the 4.5 km long viaduct consisting of 2 separate structures of 10m width each for the up and down traffic has an important legacy value for the east-west traffic.
The innovative design concept was geared for high speed construction (time available: 20 months) using precast prestressed segmental techniques (no. of segments 3000) for most of the alignment including obligatory spans (upto 85.0 m). Standardisation was the key to cost-optimisation while decreasing the expansion joints in the deck led to increased riding comfort. Flexibility in design for accommodating modifications in alignment, span arrangement and foundation configuration contributed greatly in avoiding relocation of underground and overhead utilities.
Delhi is a city of archeological monuments and a highly sensitive approach is required to be taken for their preservation. Each of the major crossings presented difficult challenges. For instance, the block-time for the Northern Railway tracks was limited to a mere 2 hours on alternate days, while the deck level had to be raised to 20m to provide an uninterrupted view of the Khan-i-Khana Tomb on Mathura Road. Sharp curvatures and skew crossing characterised the alignment to avoid crossings above the ancient Barapulla Bridge and to ensure that the elevated corridor can be built without showing on shutting down traffic.

Indian Concrete Institute, Allahabad Centre Award 2008 for the Best Structure Built in UP
ALLAHABAD BYPASS BRIDGE OVER RIVER GANGA, ALLAHABAD
The 1013m long bridge across the River Ganga near Allahabad is located on the Khaga-Varanasi section of National Highway No. 2 Separate structures were designed for 2 lanes each for the up and down traffic. The span arrangement selected was 63.2m + 4x95m + 63.2m = 506.4m. Two such units with expansion joints (modular strip/box steel type) at the midway point make up the bridge length. Shock Transmission Units (STUs) were incorporated for countering earthquake forces in an efficient manner.
Precast segmental construction was used for the superstructure with a parabolic soffit to get a high quality product with excellent finish and fast erection speed. Independent underslung launching trusses of 230m length were used for erection and placement of segments (governing weight 80t) employing portal gantries. Jack-down well-sinking was employed for the foundations for speeding up construction and for greater control over tilt and shift.

GRADE SEPARATOR AT GHAZIPUR INTERSECTION ON NH-24 BYPASS, NEW DELHI

Awards

GRADE SEPARATOR AT GHAZIPUR INTERSECTION ON NH-24 BYPASS, NEW DELHI
The 3-level grade separator was constructed on the critical intersection of NH-24 & Road no.56 in East Delhi and was before the Commonwealth Games 2010. A flyover is aligned along NH-24 and an Underpass perpendicular to it. The existing rotary at ground level was retained but modified to suit the structural arrangement.
The 800m long flyover consists of 2 separate carriageways of 4 lanes each. The “twin-leaf” substructure is monolithic to the superstructure to constitute an “ integral” bridge. Cast-in-situ balanced cantilever construction was adopted to yield 4-span and 3-span modules.
The 680m long Underpass is constructed using diaphragm walls along its periphery. Tension piles were used with the base slab to counteract uplift due to the high water table. The portion of the Underpass crossing the rotary was covered with a deck slab cast into the diaphragm walls.
