### Units for the Earth Work

• All the units in the earthworks are to be measured in the unit of Cubic Meter, i.e. m3, except the following;
• the work of the surface dressing, leveling, cleaning, etc. are to be measured in the unit of the Square Meter, i.e. m2;
• Cutting of the trees (Girth Specified) is measured in the Nos;
• For the earthwork, the normal lead and normal lifts are 30m and 1.5m respectively.
