    1. Dear Sir,

      Thank you for your inquiry regarding plum concrete in road construction and its adherence to code practices, particularly in relation to the replacement of breast walls. While I don’t have access to the latest versions of IS codes as my knowledge cutoff is in September 2021, I can provide you with some general information about plum concrete and its usage in road construction.

      Plum concrete, also known as lean concrete or dry lean concrete, is a mixture of cement, sand, and coarse aggregates. It is typically used as a foundation layer or sub-base in road construction to provide stability and strength to the road structure. Plum concrete is often placed in thin layers and compacted thoroughly.

      Regarding the specific guidelines and code practices for plum concrete in road construction, it is best to refer to the relevant Indian Standard (IS) codes related to road construction. The following codes may be applicable in this context:

      IS 2185 (Part 1): Concrete Masonry Units – Specification (Part 1: Hollow and Solid Concrete Blocks)
      IS 383: Specifications for Coarse and Fine Aggregates from Natural Sources for Concrete
      IS 456: Plain and Reinforced Concrete – Code of Practice
      IS 10262: Concrete Mix Proportions – Guidelines
      These codes provide specifications and guidelines for various aspects of concrete construction, including the design mix, quality control, and construction practices. It’s important to review the relevant sections of these codes to understand any specific provisions related to plum concrete in road construction.

      To obtain the most up-to-date information and guidelines, I recommend referring to the latest versions of these codes. You can access them through the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) website or obtain hard copies from BIS offices or authorized distributors.

      Please note that it’s always advisable to consult with experienced civil engineers, architects, or other professionals who are familiar with the latest codes and practices in road construction. They can provide specific guidance based on your project requirements and ensure compliance with the applicable codes.

      I hope this information is helpful. If you have any further questions or need assistance with any other topic, please feel free to ask.
