Stormwater Pit Remediation Scope

The contractor is to supply all plant, material and labour to carry out the
following
works:
5.2.1 Pit 11 and 15:
Retain existing concrete pits and remove existing concrete lintels,
pit lids and covers. Saw cut and remove the existing concrete kerb
and channel and adjacent bluestone edging (road side of kerb and
channel). The approximate extent of the cutting is shown in sheet
P02 Detail 01 and sheet P04 Detail 03. In addition the roadside wall
of each pit shall be saw cut and lowered by a sufficient amount so as
to allow a minimum 150 mm vertical opening when the lintel is
replaced.
Reinstate Pits 11 and 15 with Rocla Vic roads 1800 mm wide lintel
and
Rocla RCA 1200 x 750 pit lid and cover. The new lintels are to be

a minimum of 150 mm compacted (95% standard compactive
effort)
crushed rock under the lintel pillars either side of the pits. The lintel is
to
then be backfilled around the sides and back with concrete to
provide
support. The pit lid frame is to be fitted onto the existing pit by
bedding
in mortar. The pit lids have been intentionally oversized and
any
overhang beyond the pit wall is to be backfilled with concrete to
prevent
future cracking of the lids edges.
The inside of the lintels is to be shaped with concrete infill to

transition
from the lintel width (1500 mm) to the pit width (assumed to be 900
mm). The concrete infill surface is to be with a smooth trowelled finish.
The removed sections of kerb and adjacent bluestone edge are to be
reinstated with a poured concrete channel/apron which is to be of
a
minimum thickness of 300 mm on the road side as shown Section D
and
F. Steel reinforcing within the concrete channel/apron are to
comprise

concrete (and secured with suitable adhesive compound, such


as chemset). The starter bars are to be bent at a suitable angle to
extend a minimum of 200 mm into the new concrete, the bars must
be tied to the reinforcing mesh. The poured concrete channel is to
be shaped to concentrate and grade flows toward the lintel/pit
opening. The lintel opening is to be at least 150 mm high (measured
between the concrete channel/apron and the lintel soffit). The poured
concrete channel/apron surface is to be left with a smooth trowelled
finish.
5.2.2 Pit 14:
Break out and remove the existing brick pit, lintel and lid and cover.
Saw cut and remove the existing concrete kerb and channel and
one line of bluestone edging (road side of kerb and channel). The
approximate extent of the concrete cutting is shown in sheet P03
Detail 02.
All new pits, including access covers, gully grates and frames
complying with AS:3996, are to be constructed to the details
shown
on
the drawings and to the requirements of the
manufacturers. Inlet and outlet pipes are to be cored from the
precast pits (cored hole size equal to the pipe diameter plus 50 mm).
The pipes penetrations through the pit walls shall be sealed with
epoxy mortar.
The new Pit 14 is to comprise a Rocla Precast RKO 600 x 900 pit and
riser to match existing depth of stormwater pipe (Contractor to
