There are three quarries namely Bakaiya River, Bagmati River and Rapti River near to the project site with approximately 50 km distance with crusher plant established. These quarries have sufficient amount of raw material for the SIA project to be built. Raw materials collected from these quarries meet the standard specification of Department of Roads as well as Manual of Tribhwan International Project for the undergoing construction project of two bay in south of bay no: 1. Raw materials are tested for Gradation, Los Angeles Abrasion (LAA), Aggregate Crushing Value (ACV), Sodium Sulphate Soundness (SSS), Specific Gravity (G), California Bearing Ratio (CBR) and are found to meet the specifications
