MAIN ROAD TO PORT SAID EASTERN HARBOUR
Construction of the main road between Port Said Eastern Harbour and the highway with a total length of 10 km and width 85 m.
The road crosses an area previously used for discharging dredged soil out of the Suez Canal. The soil is very loose to a depth of seven meters with the underground water table at (- 0.5 m) from the surface.
No mechanical equipment could be used on such loose soil to perform the excavation works needed for soil replacement.
The technique developed by PETROJET was to divide the route into sections, continuously flood the section to form a dredge able pool, then use an offshore dredger to dredge the site up to seven meters depth.
The area behind the dredger was then backfilled with strong soil to form the foundation for the road.
Scope Of Works:
– Construction of Phase II of the Main Road to Port Said Eastern Harbour.
Excavation 1 million m3
Backfilling 720,000 m3
Base Coarse 295,000 m2
Pitching 60,000 m2
Asphalt 150,000 m2
Location: Port Said - Egypt
