Pavement design was based on lab CBR, insitu CBR & Benkelman-beam testing. Four major bridges were constructed to NAASRA specifications & numerous culverts were built. Several quarries were established using mobile screening & crushing plants from which all pavement materials were supplied. A complete material testing laboratory was established on site. Two 200 man camps were set up complete with reticulated power, water & sewerage to service the project over the 2.5 year construction period.
