 Alternative design criteria other than
TRRL East African Flood Model should
be considered e.g. kinematic theory or
Gumbel distribution that uses real data
analysis from 1st principles. Experience
from infrastructure project managers
shows that the TRRL method leads to
an over design similar to what is being
experienced in this design. (Lot 2)
 Review of bridge and Culvert designs

 All option analysis for choosing and
sizing of drainage structures should be
included in the Final Design report. (Lot
