  2. 2. Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana PMGSY• Rural Road Connectivity is not only a key component of Rural Development by promoting access to economic and social services and thereby generating increased agricultural incomes and productive employment opportunities in India, it is also as a result, a key ingredient in ensuring sustainable poverty reduction. Notwithstanding the efforts made, over the years, at the State and Central levels, through different Programmes, about 40% of the Habitations in the country are still not connected by All-weather roads.• It is well known that even where connectivity has been provided, the roads constructed are of such quality (due to poor construction or maintenance) that they cannot always be categorized as All-weather roads.• With a view to redressing the situation, Government have launched the Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana on 25th December, 2000 to provide all-weather access to unconnected habitations. The Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana (PMGSY) is a 100% Centrally Sponsored Scheme. 50% of the Cess on High Speed Diesel (HSD) is earmarked for this Programme.April 18, 2013 Transportation Engineering Rahul 2 Agrawal
  3. 3. Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana PMGSY• The primary objective of the PMGSY is to provide Connectivity, by way of an All- weather Road (with necessary culverts and cross-drainage structures, which is operable throughout the year), to the eligible unconnected Habitations in the rural areas, in such a way that all Unconnected Habitations with a population of 1000 persons and above are covered in three years (2000-2003) and all Unconnected Habitations with a population of 500 persons and above by the end of the Tenth Plan Period (2007). In respect of the Hill States (North-East, Sikkim, Himachal Pradesh, Jammu & Kashmir, Uttaranchal) and the Desert Areas (as identified in the Desert Development Programme) as well as the Tribal (Schedule V) areas, the objective would be to connect Habitations with a population of 250 persons and above.• The PMGSY will permit the Upgradation (to prescribed standards) of the existing roads in those Districts where all the eligible Habitations of the designated population size (refer Para 2.1 above) have been provided all-weather road connectivity. However, it must be noted that Upgradation is not central to the Programme and cannot exceed 20% of the State’s allocation as long as eligible Unconnected Habitations in the State still exist. In Upgradation works, priority should be given to Through Routes of the Rural Core Network, which carry more traffic (see Para 3.7 below)April 18, 2013 Transportation Engineering Rahul 3 Agrawal

  35. 35. Bituminous Mix Design : Introduction • A good design of bituminous mix is expected to result in a mix which is adequately – strong – durable – resistive to fatigue & permanent deformation – Environment friendly – economical and so on. • A mix designer tries to achieve these requirements through a number of tests on the mix with varied proportions and finalizes with the best one. • This often involves a balance between mutually conflicting parameters. • The present article tries to identify some of the issues involved in this art of bituminous mix design and the direction of current research.April 18, 2013 Transportation Engineering Rahul 35 Agrawal
  36. 36. Selection of Mix Constituents : Binder • Generally binders are selected based on some simple tests and other site-specific requirements. • These tests could be different depending of the type of binder viz. penetration grade, cutback, emulsion, modified binder etc. For most of these tests, the test conditions are pre-fixed in the specifications. • Rolling Thin Film Oven Test (RTFO), Pressurized Aging Vessel (PAV), Dynamic Shear Rheometer, Rotational Viscometer, Bending Beam Rheometer, Direct Tension Tester are some of the tests recommended in Super pave binder selection.April 18, 2013 Transportation Engineering Rahul 36 Agrawal
  37. 37. Selection of Mix Constituents : Aggregates • Number of tests are recommended in the specifications to judge the properties of the aggregates, e.g. strength, hardness, toughness, durability, angularity, shape factors, clay content, adhesion to binder etc. • Angularity ensures adequate shear strength due to aggregate interlocking, and limiting flakiness ensures that aggregates will not break during compaction and handling. • The restricted zone and control points are incorporated in order to ensure certain proportion of fines for – proper interlocking of aggregates – to avoid the fall in shear strength of mix due to excess of fines – to maintain requisite Voids in Mineral Aggregates (VMA). • These control points and restriction zones are more as guidelines for selecting a gradation than a compulsion to be followed.April 18, 2013 Transportation Engineering Rahul 37 Agrawal
  38. 38. Role of Mix Volumetric Parameters • Bitumen holds the aggregates in position, and the load is taken by the aggregate mass through the contact points. • If all the voids are filled by bitumen, then the load is rather transmitted by hydrostatic pressure through bitumen, and strength of the mix therefore reduces. • That is why stability of the mix starts reducing when bitumen content is increased further beyond certain value. • However excess void will make the mix weak from its elastic modulus and fatigue life considerations. The chances of oxidative hardening of bitumen are more, where, the mix has more voids. • Evaluation and selection of aggregate gradation to achieve minimum VMA is the most difficult and time- consuming step in the mix design process. • VMA specification has always been a big issue in mix design specifications. The recommendation of minimum VMA is sometimes questioned by the researchers, and is said not to be equitable across different gradations. It is seen that the bitumen film thickness, rather than the VMA, may be related to durability of the mix.April 18, 2013 Transportation Engineering Rahul 38 Agrawal
