Location of OHE Portals is a mandatory requirement for construction of viaduct to have appropriate loading pads for OHE on  the relevant segments of viaduct / box girders.
  • Exact locations / Segment Ids shall be advised to the Viaduct Contractor beforehand. Following activities are to be accomplished for the purpose –
    • Collection of data  pertaining to Viaduct alignment (Location,  chainages,  curvatures, gradient etc.), Track & Signalling (Location of Points, Crossings, turnouts, spare tracks and Signals) and Station Data (Location, length etc).
    • Preparation of a basic traction power supply scheme in sync with the existing system.
    • Sectioning drawing for the extended section as well modification in the existing system.

Scope of work shall include but not limited to the following:

  • Site survey and analysis of Viaduct and track alignment details (GAD) to finalize the locations for OHE mast complying with the Design Basis Report (DBR) and other  applicable standards for OHE system  design.
