Dear Mr. Elangovan, During our site inspection on 4” August, 2014, along with your representative, we noticed the execution of excavation work with 0.50 m depth of foundation from ground level, for installation of W-Beam Barrier at Ch.52+050 on LHS without raising RFI for our inspection. We have informed the said work is not compliance with the Specifications and Standards. The acceptable Standards shall be followed as per Clause 1.4 under SECTION-1 (GENERAL) of Manual of Specifications and Standards for Six laning of National Highways of Concession Agreement. The Guidelines for installation of traffic safety barriers shall be followed as per Ministry's, Circular no.RWINH-33022/1/94-DO Ill dated 24” June 1994, and the same is enclosed for your ready reference as Annexure-1. The details of locations as well as drawings for the installation of W-Beam Barriers shall be ‘submitted as per the provisions of Concession Agreement. The executed / ongoing work of W-Beam Barrier is not meeting the requirements of Specifications & Standards. It shall be rectified as per above mentioned Ministry's Circular.
