Supports the technical choice proposed by the APSARA National Authority team;
This option involving a reassembly of the step structures along the embankment using traditional techniques and using the same ancient material is justified here due to the presence of the ancient stratigraphy of the soil below the steps. It also has the advantage unlike the neighboring span using certain modern materials, namely geotextile- of implementing right next to the neighboring span an experimental span using ancient techniques, and thus comparing their respective effectiveness of these options.
