Can we propose a Box Culvert in two vertical steps so as to economise the vertical wall of about 7 m total height by reducing its height to half?

Need your valuable suggestions.

Thanks.

Dear Kawal,
Certainly One can design two step wall but the Disadvantage of casting is inducing horizontal construction joints in walls which are prone to leakages, but you can certainly reduce reinforcement as required along the length of wall.

Looks good to me. You could reduce the material requirement by using beams instead of a slab to break the height of the walls.
