Elevated Road in Jaipur from LIC office to Sodala Junction
As a step for augmenting city transportation infrastructure, Jaipur Development Authority has undertaken a major project of construction of Elevated corridor on Hawa Sarak between Ambedkar Circle & Sodala junction. This corridor will provide a controlled assessed high capacity corridor in east-west direction of the city for which there are very few roads available presently. The corridor has been planned as sleek structure on single aesthetic piers taking only 2m width in median. People travelling on this from Ambedekar Circle side will get the up ramp near LIC building. This road will have a down ramp in front of hotel Hilton also. From Sodala side, the up ramp will start near Chambal power house. The superstructure has been designed as segmental construction with similarity of aesthetic design of JJ Flyover Mumbai.
The cost of the project is Rs. 250 crore. M/s L&T Infrastructure Engineering are design consultants of the Project. The proof checking of design has been entrusted to MNIT, Jaipur. M/s Simplex Infrastructure Ltd. is executing agency for the project. Work on the project has been started and efforts are being made to make it operational by October 2018.
At present, the piles initial load tests is in progress. The pile safe load capacity has been taken as 400 MT. The tests are being carried out at following locations:
1. Adjacent existing 22 Godam ROB towards east of Railway Line.
2. Adjacent Railway boundary near old HPCL land.
3. Opposite Hotel Hilton
4. Near old level crossing on west side of Railway line.
5. Near Chambal Power House
The first test has been conducted and as per test report the actual pile capacity is 350 MT as reflected by this isolated test. The final capacity will be decided after subsequent tests and comparisons thereof as per codal provisions. The working piles work is anticipated to be started by 15th Nov.2016.
