PLANNING OF PROJECTS-EARTHWORKS-DENMARK

THE PROPOSED MOTORWAYS IN DENMARK CALL FOR COMPREHENSIVE SOIL SURVEYS FOR THE PAVEMENT DESIGN. IN PLANNING THESE SURVEYS, SYSTEMATIC USE IS BEING MADE OF EXISTING GEOLOGICAL AND GEOLOGICAL-GEOTECHNICAL EXPERIENCE. GEOLOGICAL MAPPING OF THE SUBSOIL WHICH HAS BEEN UNDERTAKEN IS DESCRIBED. ON THE STRENGTH OF THESE MAPS AND OF PERSONAL EXPERIENCE GEOLOGICAL REPORTS AND MAPS ARE WORKED OUT FOR THE AREAS AFFECTED BY PROPOSED MOTORWAY INSTALLATIONS. THE USE OF SUCH REPORTS AND MAPS HAS RESULTED IN A HIGHER DEGREE OF ACCURACY IN ESTIMATING THE QUANTITIES OF SWAMPY GROUND WHICH MUST BE EXCAVATED AND HAS PERMITTED DETAILED PLANNING OF THE REMAINING SOIL SURVEYS, WITH CONSEQUENT SAVINGS IN THE EXTENT OS SOIL SURVEY OPERATIONS. THE MARKED RISE IN THE STANDARD OF LIVING IN DENMARK HAS RESULTED IN AN ENORMOUS INCREASE IN THE RATE OF MOTORWAY CONSTRUCTION THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY. THIS HAS GIVEN RISE TO PROBLEMS OF ADMINISTRATION AND CO-ORDINATION BETWEEN THE DIFFERENT AUTHORITIES. IN ORDER TO SOLVE THIS PROBLEM, THE PERT NETWORK PLANNING SYSTEM HAS BEEN INTRODUCED FOR THE PREPARATION OF THE PROJECT AND HAS ALSO BEEN TRIED OUT FOR THE EXECUTION OF SPECIFIC JOBS. THE RESULTS OF NETWORK PLANNING FOR A CERTAIN SECTION OF THE MOTORWAY ACROSS FUNEN (84 KM) ARE DISCUSSED. IN THE CASE OF A BRIDGE CONSTRUCTION JOB AND A ROAD SURFACING JOB, THE CONTRACTORS WERE REQUIRED TO MAKE USE OF NETWORK PLANNING, AND THE APPLICATION OF THE SYSTEM CAN BE RECOMMENDED ALSO FOR THIS PURPOSE. NETWORK PLANNING, TAKING THE PLACE OF CONVENTIONAL PLANNING METHODS, CAN BE RECOMMENDED FOR THE PLANNING METHODS AND EXECUTION OF MAJOR ROAD WORKS AND FACILITATE THE ADAPTION OF THE WORKS TO A GIVEN RATE OF CAPITAL EXPENDITURE.
