Challenge : space constraints


Impacts
Casting ,stacking& transportation
Erection scheme

Stacking ,Transportation & Erection Of Precast Girder


A major concern with girder erection is the security and stability of the superstructure
During all phases of erection with respect to construction conditions, wind loads and construction loads.
Stacking of the girders until the erection part comes & delivery of precast concrete girders to the site
Erection of precast girders with the traffic flow
.

Taking the above things in consideration L&T made a detailed


erection scheme.
