Review and updating of General Specificationsof National Highway Authority (1991) became essential in light of new responsibilities entrusted by the Honorable Prime Ministerof Pakistanon this Agency to Construct Motorways and other important highways standards. on international In order to assess the new requirementsof General Specifications we arranged series of meetings with other consultants of the Authority, besides getting the opinions of major contractors in Highway Industry. We also consulted different Directoratesof the Authority to know the problems felt by them during execution of highway projects. A seminar was also arranged to discuss various maters, which attracted representatives of various clients, consultants and contractors of highway industry in Pakistan. We have carried out amendments in the current General Specifications looking to the causes of disputes and reasons of failure of certain roads constructed in various parts of the country. Addition of new items has also been made in the existing specifications to cater for future needs of NationalHighway Authority. Our sincere thanks are due to several agencies, which contributed in compilation of this important document, however special attention of Contracts and SpecificationsSection of NationalHighwayAuthority under the guidanceof GhairmanNHA, helped us to complete the assignment successfully. We hope that this document will iontribute effectively in improvingthe workmanshipand qualityof highwayconstructionin Pakistan.

The bottomof the trenchshallbe shapedto conformto the shape of the pipe for at leasttwenty(2O) percentof its outsidediameter. The width of the trench shall not be greaterthan two(2) times the pipe diameter, to permit satisfactory jointingand thorough tampingof the'beddingmaterial specified in item 502 under and around the pipe. Recesses shall be excavatedfor any bells involved. where rock or hardpanis encountered, the trenchshall be excavated a depthat least (30) centimeters to betowthe grade established the bottom of the pipe. This excess depth shall for be refilled with approved material and thoroughly compacted. where in the opinion the Engineer, natural of the foundation is suchas soil to requirestabilization, such material shall be replacedby a layerof suitable material. where an unsuitable material (peat,mulch,etc.)is encountered at or below invert elevation during excavation,the necessary subsurface exploration and analysis shall be made and corrective treatmentshallbe as directedby the Engineer.
