Balaram Bridge

Remdial Measures

Due to the oscillating movement of the girder in vertical direction at supports, girder bottom was getting damaged and hence it was decided to arrest that movement temporarily and scheme was adopted for that.

  • At span no.3 gap between main girder and pier cap was filled by steel plates, ISMB and wooden planks to minimize the vertical movement.
  • Surface irregularities were filled by pre mix carpet at top of the slab to reduce impact while plying of vehicles.
  • Expansion joint gap was filled by shalitex board and sealant by polysulphide to preserve bearing from foreign materials.
  • Provided speed breaker on both side to minimize the speed of vehicles.
  • Provided precautionary board for minimizing speed of vehicles.
