Addressing challenges with Leica’s PaveSmart 3D system
NIS, under the stewardship of Mr. Parminder Singh Sidhu, began the paving of the tunnel road in March 2016. This tunnel road will include the construction of a:

  • 9 km highway
  • 50 metre single span bridge at the north portal of the tunnel
  • 40 m single span approaching bridge at the south portal.

Conventional methodology for paving dictates setting up of stringlines. This procedure has inherent flaws that handicap the timeline of a project. Physical strings occupy more space, halt vehicular movement and pose a serious safety hazard for the personnel working on-site.

Mr. Parminder Sidhu envisaged that Leica Geosystems’ automated 3D paving technology could overcome these handicaps, enabling his company to deliver a product that meets high standards under such challenging conditions.

The implemented 3D stringless paving solution, PaveSmart 3D, made it possi-ble to operate inside the restricted area of the tunnel.

"Not having to put up stringlines has given freedom on site for truck movement. Trucks deposit the concrete and exit much faster," said Sandeep, plant engineer.
