Barapullah road extension set to be eco-friendly

The extension of the elevated Barapullah road will pioneer several environmentally sustainable engineering concepts. The PWD has finalized an elaborate plan modeling it on the lines of an environmentally sustainable project. The plan comes from project manager Shishir Bansal who, sources said, is a research scholar on the subject at the Delhi Technological University.

One of the most important measures includes proper utilization of concrete waste during the construction work. Instead of dumping concrete waste, around 3,000 metric tones of it will be recycled to be used in city projects like pavement tiles etc. “The one metre of concrete on top of the pile foundation is considered poor concrete and is chopped off. Also, when the loops will be added to the existing elevated structure, the concrete from the crash barriers will be removed. We will then send this waste to the recycling plant at Burari that is run by the corporations” said a senior PWD official.

Meanwhile, fly ash — natural hazard and difficult to dispose — will be used in earth filling and in concrete to enhance its strength. PWD will take this fly ash from the NTPC thermal plant. “NTPC faces difficulty in disposing this fly ash as it is constantly being produced. We will take it from them and mix it in the earthen filling and concrete,” the official added.

In a first, high-grade concrete (M-75) will be used as part of this project leading to a lesser overall consumption of cement due to slimmer structures, said officials. The project will also ensure that there is minimum waste of land as the extension road will be aligned over the nullah, said officials.

The Rs 355-crore project will have six ad
