Patel Infra – Using innovative technologies to build the nation

Passing through the textile district of Sangrur and Barnala, the land is blessed with holy shrines; Sangrur Bypass and Dhanoula Bypass is one of the latest projects executed by Patel Infra.

Patel Infra was founded in 1972 by the late Vithalbhai Gobarbhai Patel and it was earlier known as Patel Construction Company. Patel Infra is an established construction, development and maintenance service company mainly involved in the business framework of construction of roads and highways, bridges, irrigation and mining projects, construction of commercial buildings, and other ancillary services like toll collection, operation and maintenance of highways.

Sangrur Bypass and Dhanoula Bypass – Cutting through the heart of Punjab
The latest project undertaken by the group was the four laning of Sangrur Bypass and Dhanoula Bypass (Patiala- Sangrur- Barnala- Bathinda section) of NH 64 from Km 110.720 to Km 123.900 (existing chainage from Km. 106.170 to Km.116.950) Sangrur Bypass and from Km. 144.900 to Km.149.960 (existing chainage from Km 138.030 to Km. 142.950) Dhanoula Bypass on Engineering Procurement and Construction (EPC) mode. The project was commissioned by the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH). The project was worth Rs 256.51 crore.

The proposed 4-Lane Sangrur bypass starts from Km 106.170 to Km 116.950 and proposed bypass Dhanaula stars from Km 138.030 to Km 142.950 of NH-64 in the state of Punjab under NHDP Phase IVA on EPC Mode. The Project Road is located in the district of Sangrur and Barnala. In general, the terrain is plain. Further, the project stretch has a virgin alignment, which means the project is constructed on greenfield land where entire land was acquired for construction of this highway. The pavement type all along project corridor is rigid. The Project Road has one Rail-Road level crossing and numerous irrigation canal crossings. This Project Road passes through the districts of Sangrur and Barnala of Punjab State.

Structural specifics
The project stretch was passing through sensitive zones like army cantonments, canals and densely populated parts of the city. To carry out construction work in such areas was indeed a challenging for us. Also, The scope includes construction of One number of Rail Over bridge having span arrangement “2×19.5m PSC Girder” and “1x50m Steel Composite Girder”, One number of Major Bridge having span greater than 21.45 meters, Eight numbers of Vehicular Underpass Structure and to construct these structures by diverting heavy traffic was a critical activity. Omitting all the challenges, the company managed to finish the project timely by proper Project planning and monitoring. To have such a challenging project and to accomplish them timely is a matter of privilege for us.

Use of innovative Wirtgen machines and mega concrete production batching plants
The pavement proposed to develop this project was rigid type, which is made up with pavement controlled concrete (high grade concrete), which we laid with fully automatic ultra-modern slip-form type SP-94 paver make of Wirtgen technologies (imported specially from Germany), The era of this project is in very beginning of time where Ministry of Road Transport and Highways adopted Rigid Pavements to National Highway Development, And we are proud by saying that we were part of this monumental achievement. Also, to cater the concrete production, mega concrete production batching plants were installed with the capacity to produce 254 cum concrete within an hour. The pavement is made up of high-grade concrete, which comprises high-grade materials to sustain heavy traffic conditions and extreme weather.

Use of sustainable methods for construction
In the said project various sustainable construction techniques were used for instance, rain water harvesting system, solid waste management, slope turfing, environmental protection by planting trees on road sides and road landscaping were done as per guidelines provided in IRC: SP 21 2009 and all the aspects of pollution control were kept in mind during construction. The company also took various permissions from the local and state administration to establish its plants and adopt required measures as per state guidelines related to safety and the environment clearances. During the construction of the project, various diversions were constructed according to the provisions of IRC Codes for the smooth and safe movement of road users in dense, foggy weather. To ensure safety, the project site was periodically visited by external safety and environment auditors appointed by the Authority. Further total 23,350 trees were planted in the median of the road and total 22,000 at the edge of the project highway to compensate for the de-vegetation that occurred during the development of this highway.
