Diptimoy Datta,
Senior DGM (Bridges), ECC Division L&T, New Delhi
Panipat, the war city of India situated at 90 km from National capital, Delhi, has a glorious pastin the Indian history. It is said that at the time of battle of Mahabharat one of the five villageswhich were demanded by the pandavas was "Panpat” which was later on renamed as Panipat.Three major battles were fought at this place in 1526, 1556 and 1761. Panipat is famous inIndia by the name of “City of Weaver.” Panipat district has significant place in internationalmarket for “Handloom products.” It is also the biggest centre for shoddy yarn in the world.National Highway No. 1 connecting Delhi-Panipat-Ambala-Amritsar and going upto Indo/Pakborder is a very important National highway and connects northern part of the country includingstates of Jammu and Kashmir, Punjab, Himachal Pradesh and Haryana with Delhi and rest ofthe country. In eventuality of war, this road also serves as a vital link to Wagha border area asDelhi Cantonment, Ambala Cantonment and Jalandhar Cantonment are situated along sidethis road. As a result traffic intensity on the road is very high. The project section throughPanipat is a serious bottleneck to the speedy, smooth and safe flow of traffic mainly on accountof congested ypes of traffic due to Panipat being an industrial city.
The Panipat Elevated Expressway Project (PEEP) has come up in the heart of Panipat. Theentire stretch between km 86.000 & 96.000 has been been developed to a 6 lane accesscontrol highway with elevated 6 lane structure from 88560 to 92160. This 3.6 km flyover is thelongest 6 lane flyover in India till date. This Built Operate and Transfer (BoT) project has beenexecuted by L&T Panipat Elevated Corridor Limited (L&T PECL). National Highways Authorityof India (NHAI), New Delhi has alloted a 20 year concession to PEEP to finance, design, built,operate and maintain this new bridge. It is the first BoT project completed 6 months ahead ofschedule.

The 3.6 Km long flyover is the longest 6 lane flyover in India, built by utilizing state of arttechnology. The foundation of this bridge consists of 1282 piles done by rotary rig method overwhich pile caps and piers have been built upon. I-Girders have been pre–cast at the basecamp and transported to site in specially modified trailers, where the erection work has beencompleted using Gantries and high capacity cranes.
For the first time in India, precast deck slabs have been used as a load bearing member incombination with cast-in-situ. This has most efficiently led to time and cost reduction forcompletion of the project. Photographs 1 & 2.
