Preliminary Engineering-cum-traffic Survey

In practice, and quite often, both the traffic survey and the preliminary engineering survey are carried out simultaneously in order to expedite the project. In such cases techno-economic survey reports based on preliminary-cum-traffic surveys are compiled. Such techno-economic survey reports contain the following details.

(a) Introduction

(b) Traffic projections

(c) Analysis of alternatives

(d) Characteristics of project area

(e) Standards of construction (for new lines, multiple tracking schemes, gauge conversions)

(f) Route selection and project description

(g) Project engineering (for new lines, multiple tracking schemes, and gauge conversions)

(h) Cost, phasing, and investment schedules

(i) Financial appraisal

(j) Recommendations
