Geotechnical Investigation for various structural locations for the Project of Construction of Ganga Path from Digha to Didarganj (21.50 Km) in Patna
One of the most important geotechnical investigation works carried out by CETEST in this year for various structural locations for construction of Ganga path from Digha to Didarganj in Patna, Bihar was awarded by Navayuga Engineering Company Ltd. The proposed Ganga path has been designed as a high speed corridor with excellent riding conditions and provision of allied facilities in addition to planned riverfront development activities. The project will have world class facilities like noise barriers and fencing, street lighting, pedestrian facilities, landscaping and tree plantation, and traffic and medical aid posts among others. It demanded mobilization of 6 Calyx rigs, floating platforms along with SPT and sampling assemblies. Carrying out boring, drilling work for 165 boreholes up to a depth of 70 mts was challenging. It also involved drilling work in soil under water, upto a depth of 15 mt. Cetest’s qualified engineers and supervisors worked relentlessly to make this project a success. The laboratory tests were conducted after successful completion of sample collection and storage. A detailed report was generated to facilitate the construction of this major bridge over river Ganga.
