              contractor employed by IRCON or in executing the work not forming part
              of the contract but on which contractor‟s performance necessarily depends

           contractor.
       (e) The above limit of variation shall not be applicable for small value items

6.0   EARTH WORK
6.1   EARTH WORK IN EMBANKMENT FOR ROAD AND OTHER PLACES:
6.1.1 Earthwork in embankment shall be done as per approved profile or as directed by
      engineer in charge. This will also include trolley refuges at locations as desired by
      Engineer in charge. Earthwork in embankment shall be carried out generally
      conforming to guidelines for Earthworks in Railway Projects (May, 1987) issued
      by RDSO, Lucknow and amended from time to time. Attention is invited to
      guidelines for execution of earthwork in embankments and cuttings for new
      construction, doubling and conversion projects issued by RDSO and approved by

      that extent.
6.1.4 The rate includes all jungle clearance, cutting uprooting of tree upto 30 (thirty)-
      cm girths at one metre above G.L. The trees so cut shall be the property of the
      railway and they shall be stacked as per directions of the Engineer-in-charge.
6.1.5 Cutting of trees shall be done by contractor as per State forest dept. regulations.
6.1.6 Earthwork required for making level crossing and platforms shall also be paid for
      at the rate quoted.
6.1.7 The contractor shall bail out/pump water from pockets, ditches, ponds etc., at his

      Engineer. The contractor shall be fully responsible for payment of compensation
      arising out of accident, if any.
6.1.9 The fill materials to be used shall be free from stumps, trees, roots, etc., and shall
      be used only after approval by the Engineer-in-charge.

7.0    MECHANICAL COMPACTION OF EARTHWORK
7.1    After site clearance, all pockets and depressions left in the soil, if any, shall be
       made good and compacted. Earthwork shall be done in layers not exceeding
       30mm (12") thick in the loose state and compacted preferably at or near the OMC
       with suitable rollers to obtain the density specified.
7.2    Smooth wheel self propelled roller of three wheels weighing 8 to 10 tonnes or
       Caterpillar tractor drawn tamping sheep foot rollers or vibratory compactors
       should be used for compaction of earthwork in embankment. The tamping rollers


Signature of Tenderer/s                                                                     43
       shall have their feet projecting from the surface by not less than 75mm and the
       feet shall not be less than 150 mm apart. It is also advisable that the contractor
       uses vibratory compactors for compaction of earthwork in embankment.
7.3    The number of passes of the rollers and the optimum thickness of each layer shall
       be fixed after carrying out field trials with the roller proposed to be used from
       time to time and from location to location, the main criteria being to obtain the
       required density.
7.4    Each layer shall continue to be rolled until no further compaction results. The
       layers shall be free from ruts.
7.5    In parts of embankment, inaccessible to the specified rolling equipment, around
       and in contact with culverts, abutments or in proximity to structure where it will
       not be possible to operate rolling equipment, compaction shall be accomplished
       by hand tamping with hand or mechanical tampers of approved type. Roller shall
       not be permitted to operate within 1500 mm of masonry/concrete structure and all
       fills within this distance shall be made hand tamped. All materials to be tamped
       shall be spread in layers not over 100mm thick. The moisture content at the time
       of tamping shall be such as to produce a degree of compaction equal to that
       specified for rolled fill. Final rolling of the top layer of the fill shall be completed
       with a self propelled smooth wheel power driven roller or multiple pneumatic tyre
       wheeled roller or hand tamped to the required profile.
7.6    The filling over culverts shall be made up simultaneously from both sides.
7.7    In back filling, above or against or in filling over masonry or other structures, the
       materials shall be deposited more than 100mm thick, sloping away from the
       structure with each layer carefully tamped. Only the selected materials shall be
       used for this purpose. Highly cohesive, wet, impervious material shall not be
       used.
7.8    (i)     Cohesion less soil shall be compacted to get a minimum density index
               (Relative density) of 70% as obtained in accordance with I.S.2720 (part
               XIV)-1983.
       (ii)    All other types of soils when compacted shall attain at least 98% of the
               maximum dry density as determined using heavy compaction in
               accordance with I.S. 2720 (Part VIII) 1983 followed by field trials as per
               IS: 10379 -1982.
7.9    Where the moisture content of the earth in any layer is above OMC it shall be left
       drying for a suitable period to bring down the moisture content very near to OMC
       before rolling is commenced. If the soil is dry, water shall be sprinkled either in
       the borrow pit or over the spread layer, as convenient, in order to attain a moisture
       content near to OMC before rolling is commenced.
7.10   Each layer shall be compacted to the desired density over its entire width
       commencing from the two sides before another layer is started.

7.11   While compacting it shall be ensured that there is a minimum overlap of 15 cms
       (6") between successive runs of the rollers.
7.12   Care shall be taken during the compaction operation to slope the surface of the
       bank facilitate the shedding and to minimize the absorption of rainwater,
       particular attention being given to the prevention of ponding.
7.13   The density of each layer of compacted soil shall be ascertained by the Railway
       by testing an adequate number of soil samples.
7.14   The quality of work shall be determined by considering the mean density of the
       samples in each layer. The mean dry density shall be equal to or exceed the
       minimum specified density. In no individual case shall the density be less than the
       minimum value specified by more than 5% otherwise further rolling shall be done
       at the appropriate location.
7.15   The contractor shall be allowed to lay a further layer of soil only after the
       compaction of a particular layer has been satisfactory.

7.24   Wherever the proposed embankment is to be formed in contact with the side slope
       of the existing bank, the same should be benched as directed by the Engineer
       before depositing earth. No extra rate will be made for benching of the existing
       bank and the rates quoted by the contractor for earthwork items are deemed to
       include the charges for benching.
7.25   In case there are rain cuts in embankment constructed by contractor during
       currency of the contract or during maintenance period the same shall be made
       good by him at his own cost to the entire satisfaction of engineer in charge.
