Close on the heels of the Karnataka government sanctioning 319 crore INR for acquiring the land to facilitate Mysore Airport runway expansion at the existing Mandakalli airport. The Airports Authority of India has kickstarted the works by inviting bids to conduct a topographic survey for the runway expansion. The AAI had entered into an MoU with the state government to expand the Mysore Airport runway to enable big planes like the A320 to operate.
Topographic Survey- Significance
In any major infrastructure project, topographic survey is the most important activity which is conducted, as this helps in identifying all the manmade and natural land features, like elevations, depressions, boundaries etc, thus enabling the preparation of accurate land maps. The prepared survey maps are then used in planning and designing.
Scope of work
The agency shall carry out the following works under the TOPOGRAPHICAL SURVEY AND MAPPING contract and complete the activity in 2 months from the date of award of work.
- A detailed topographical survey of the project shall be carried out by total station and digital auto level survey and survey plans shall be prepared at a scale of 1:100.
- Site plan shall show all boundaries with perimeter walls and roads, buildings, drains, drain outlets, electric poles, pathways, ditches, abrupt level differences in the form of depressions or mounts, trees with numbering, embankment including pitching, horizontal and vertical fences, and other relevant structures/features as well as accurate dimension of sides and diagonal.
- Detailed survey showing spot level at 50 (Fifty) meter grid and 0.5 meter contour intervals shall be carried out. The survey will also include establishment of control points, permanent and temporary benchmarks at locations identified.
