INTRODUCTION:

It is observed that thousands of people are killed every year. Some of the reasons for these accidents are attributed to exponential growth in personalized vehicles, inadequate road network, lack of efficient public transport system and on – integration of public transport system with IPT modes. Since Road Transport is a major share in traffic movement both passengers as well as goods, it is necessary to concentrate on Road Transport Regulation and enforcement to improve Road Safety. It is observed that even well educated groups also violate the traffic rules and also are not aware of the existing rules and regulations. In that case, it becomes necessary to educate these groups of passengers through awareness campaigns etc.

INTRODUCTION:

All the Structures built with material and exposed to weathering conditions are bound to show signs of distress in the form of cracks or deflections during some stage of the life. If the structure shows the signs of distress before its design life, it can be made to perform well with appropriate repair / rehabilitation / retrofitting process. Before any of these remedial are applied, it is imperative that the structure needs to be evaluated thoroughly. In seismic active regions, the structures are subjected to both static and dynamic loads and hence, special care needs to be taken in evaluating the condition, as well as repairing processes. Prevention, diagnosis and rectification of building defects, if neglected, sometimes leading to collapses, is the legal and moral responsibility of all those concerned with conceiving, planning, design and construction of building projects. Lack of durability of RCC structures is another agonizing concern especially in coastal areas. RCC buildings designed to last for a century needed “Rehabilitation works” within 30 years of construction. It is essential for everyone involved in the construction industry to understand the intricacies involved in repair / rehabilitation / retrofitting of the structures for understanding the problem in a better manner and also to know the latest trends in managing these issues. This programme on “Repair, Rehabilitation and Retrofitting of Buildings-Diagnosis, Preventive actions and Repair Techniques”, aims to address the issues involved in damage assessment and rectification of defects.

INTRODUCTION:

Pavement Management System (PMS) is a system which defines the identification of optimum strategies at various management levels and maintains pavements at an adequate level of serviceability. It provides a framework to organize and carry out activities needed to provide, operate and maintain pavements throughout the life-cycle. The basic objective is to achieve the best possible value for the public funds in order to provide safe, comfortable, efficient and economic transportation system. This can only be accomplished by comparing investment alternatives, coordinating design, construction, maintenance and evaluation activities, and making efficient use of existing practices and knowledge to provide maximum satisfaction to the Road Users. It provides a good platform for planning, execution and maintenance of the Pavements.

INTRODUCTION 

Most of the pavements constructed in the country in earlier years are bituminous, the initial performance levels of which are not encouraging, especially on corridors where the traffic volumes are high. The quality of our present roads cannot meet the needs of mass and rapid moving transportation system. Efforts are being made in the direction of building better performing pavements. The dream of realizing durable pavements, which need minimum maintenance, has partially been achieved with the advent of rigid pavements which score over their flexible counterparts with respect to performance levels. The preference of cement concrete pavements for the construction of Mumbai - Pune expressway, runway pavement structures and critical city streets stand as examples. However, due to high initial costs, rigid pavements have not attracted a place in many field applications. The tendency of rigid pavements, to distribute the load over larger area contributing to substantial structural strength by itself has helped towards realizing longer service life with minimum maintenance costs. With the vehicular traffic rising in India rapidly, there is an immediate need to adopt the latest techniques for road construction and to maintain the existing roads. It is now time to look into the latest developments and adopt them to maximum possible extent. Need of the hour is to reframe our road specifications, induct use of machinery in road construction and to introduce innovative methods of construction. To create awareness among the engineers as to how to make rigid pavements by adopting proper design procedures, material selection, construction techniques, quality control and adequate maintenance measures reducing the life-cycle costs, this 4-day programme on “Construction and Maintenance of Concrete Roads” is formulated to fulfill the needs of the agencies who are associated in formulation and developing the road construction in India.

INTRODUCTION:
Management of the construction works in a project has become a vital point as it involves many components. This has to be tackled in an efficient manner for economic, timely and quality completion of any project. As the Construction Management is complex in nature, planning is to be done in advance duly taking into consideration, the various works involved, technical and non-technical skills
required, finances required, period of completion to see that every component is completed in time as per the requirements. As most of the projects are getting in trouble due to lack of proper planning and finances. It is desirable to have an effective management in construction of any project so as to get the benefits expected in time. Unless the officers involved in construction of projects and construction companies are properly trained in construction management, it is very difficult to manage the construction of any project.
Realizing the necessity, ESCI is organizing a 5-day training programme on Construction Management – Best Practices and Modern Technologies from 13 – 17 March, 2017.
