concreting by batching plant and pre-stressed element plant, so it is stored in bulk in vertical silos. Also 300 tons of steel is to be stored which can be stored in open yards with proper fencing and near to bar benders workshop. Care should be taken that water does not get accumulated in this yard and there is proper slope to drain the rain water. Stone metal and sand can be stored in open yards, stacked in heaps with proper fencing so that the material does not get mix up with the outer material. The suppliers in the vicinity of talegaon should be invited on site by a formal notice and a meeting should be held up with the consultation of clients engineer and contractor, specifying the suppliers clearly about the following factors: i. ii. iii. iv. v. Quantity of material. Quality of material. Terms and conditions of contract. Mode of transportation. Delivery at a short notice.

The suppliers should make the above factors clear in a formal quotation and submit it to the organization. The department will further scrutinize the quotations of various suppliers and allot the same to the most optimum supplier. Workshop For the maintenance of plant and equipment both static and mobile, it is necessary to have a workshop which will undertake the maintenance, repair, overhauling and major replacement of equipment. Workshop is geared up to; carry out preventive and scheduled maintenance which is essential to keep the break-down of equipment to bare minimum. The workshop should have facilities for servicing, carrying out general repair, engine over-haul, calibration of Diesel Pump etc. Workshop should have a small machine shop attached with lathes, drilling machine, welding,

boring machine, painting, denting, sheet metal work etc. It is also to be equipped with auto electrical repair, battery charger, tyre repair etc.

QUERIES: For the proposed bridge site neartalegaon, certain queries are searched and found for arranging materials required for the construction of pre-stressed bridge such as: i. At a distance of 10 kms. from the site, strata below the ground i.e. around 3mbelow ground is found adequately hard so as to be used as aggregate after processing it in crushers. ii. Also at a distance of 25 kms. From the site, along the coastal side, natural sand is available in plenty known as river sand, which is screened and used as required? iii. If transportation cost is affordable, then in between Lonavla &Khopoli, abundant of hard rock, boulder & stones are available, which can be used at various construction stages of pre-stressed concrete bridge. Stores and stacking yards In the project site, sufficient covered stores or open storage is necessary for maintaining the material in good condition. Cement is usually supplied in bags, which is stored at the site in covered shed. The sheds are constructed with brick wall, IPSfloor, tubular structure trusses, roofing with sheets. Bags not exceeding 10 are stacked one over another. If more than 10 bags are stacked then the lower bags tend to set, making cement non-usable. In case cement is used in large quantities for concreting by the batching plant, and pre-cast element plant, is stored in bulk in vertical silos. The silos are filled up by a pneumatic pump fixed on the cement bulk carrier. From the silo cement is conveyed into the mixer of the batching plant and pre-cast element plant, through a screw conveyor. Services

The site camp is to be provided with services like electric supply, sewage disposal, communication, telephone. In case regular power supply is available from the grid, it can be tapped and necessary substation with transformer installed at site. If grid power is not available then, it may be necessary to generate own power by installing diesel generating sets. Water supply can similarly be tapped, if water lines are passing nearby in the vicinity, by providing underground storage tank and distribution through a pumping system and overhead tank. In case water mains are not available, tube well could be bored for water. Necessary treatment of water to make it safe for intended consumption will have to be carried out. For sewage disposal, since the camp is only for a temporary duration septic tank, could be provided. If it is a large site, and enough land is available, then it may be possible to provide an oxidation pond for sewage disposal. The effluent from the pond could be used for horticultural purposes of the site. In order to carry out the enabling work which is required at the very initial stage of the project itself, it may be desirable for the organization, to set up a 'crack team which can go in advance to the site and build up the entire temporary structures, services required for the enabling works. This will cut down the time required by the main project team, on their arrival at the site, and they could embark upon straight-away on execution of the main project. Such a 'crack team' can move from project to project for the organization, and they would be well trained in carrying out this activity. On the other hand, if project team assigned with the main work, is to first build up the enabling works, a lot of time is lost for the project. On most international project, and on some major projects within country, of structure being adopted for the site camp is of portable nature. These are in the form of light steel or wooden structure, which are mounted on skid beams or wheels, and can be moved to the camp site, at a very short notice. The Port cabins are provided with electrical, plumbing and sanitary fixture, and the system becomes operational at site by plugging into the electrical and water supply. Through

the initial cost of the system may be more but over a period of time it would become economically viable since the structure can be shifted to site, whereas, if the camp is built with conventional materials. Like steel, concrete, the cost would be higher in the longer run, besides the extra time required to build the Camp. TRANSPORTATION: The proposed bridge site is at Talegaon, located 35 kms away from Pune. The means of transportation are as follows: i. For staff workers & engineers, not residing on site, a minibus is arranged by the organization for their daily conveyance. ii. In case of emergencies, such as fatal accident or injury on site, the organization has arranged an ambulance in the form of Omni-van with small stretcher laid inside the van. iii. For immediate or unexpected requirement of material o site, 2 standsbytrucks are arranged for conveyance of material on site from around the vicinity of 100 kms from site. iv. For receiving consultants and executives from the nearest terminal, an automobile such as four wheeler is arranged by the organization. All the expenses required for the above conveyance are added into the total cost of the project as contingencies.
