OPERATIONAL CONSTRAINT – Maintenance Of Traffic / Single Lane Closures
Enquiry
Regarding BE 016, Operational Constraint :(Page 28 of 109) "Where operations require lane closures exceeding 250m, the total number of lane closures shall be reduced to 2. No individual lane closure shall exceed 500m and at least one of the lane closures shall not exceed 500 m. Each of these closures shall have a separation of at least 1500 m from any other single lane closure." Addendum #2 has changed the project to be completed in 140 working Days. There are 182,000+ tone of the aggregates and 30,000+ of asphalt to be placed on the 17 km road, Time shall be of the essence for carrying out the work. Normally we put more crews to do the works if working days provided in the contract is not enough. However, this Operational Constraint prevent us from putting more crews on the job site. Can the Ministry extend the construction schedule or change this Operational Constraint to allow us to put more crews? The volume of the work does not allow both this Operational Constraint and working days works together.

Response
The operational constraint is applicable for the resurfacing works only. The culvert replacements and most PDAs do not require a closure of more than 250m. For the resurfacing, the construction can be for 1Km out of 17 Km at any time, and construction work will be for two construction seasons. The number of days was reduced to 140 due to the delay in closing the Bid.
