Saipem base road was awarded to us by Saipem contracting limited in 2007. The road 1.4km long and 12m wide sloping to only one side was built round the Saipem base yard at Rumuolumeni Port Harcourt. The entire project area was earlier cleared and reclaimed with dredged sand; unfortunately, there was no initial removal of unsuitable materials before the reclamation. We therefore pushed out the filled sand, removed unsuitable materials before replacing with available sand. The scope also included 8% soil/cement stabilization of the sub-base, 200mm crushed rock mixed material as base, 60mm binder course and 50mm wearing course. Pipe culverts were constructed at some sections to enable cross draining of storm water.
