METHOD STATEMENT FOR CONSTRUCTION OF PIPE CULVERTS 1. GENERAL This item of work shall be dealt with construction of Pipe culverts in complete compliance to the technical specifications.

2. PROCEDURE The procedure for construction of Pipe culverts is elucidated as under:

DETAILED CONSTRUCTION DRAWING PREPARATION: Detailed working drawing will be prepared & submitted for approval for each and every Pipe Culvert. SETTING OUT: After the site has been surveyed, the limits of excavation shall be set out to true lines, curves and slope as per the MORT&H Specifications. DISMANTLING OF EXISTING STRUCTURE: In case of re-construction the existing structure will be dismantled after taking the joint measurement of existing structure up to NGL. In case of widening of pipe culvert only the head wall will be trimmed as shown in drawing. EXCAVATION: The excavation for foundation bed for pipe culverts shall be done true to the lines and grades shown on the drawings or in accordance with the Cl. No. 2903 of MoRT&H. After completion of the PCC and head wall up to the bottom of the pipe level, the open trench will be cut in existing embankment up to the level shown in the drawings and as per MORT&H Cl. No. 2903 (Para 1). In case of high embankments where the height of fill is more than three times the external diameter of the pipe, the embankment shall first be built to an elevation above the top of the pipe equal to the external diameter of the pipe, and to width
