Abstract

Delays are frequent in any civil engineering projects including the road projects. Project delays can result in cost overrun, time overruns, quality issues, etc. In this study, a national highway road project has been considered. A total of probable 90 delay factors were recognized and were characterized into nine foremost categories. A questionnaire was prepared, and it was filled by 101 respondents. Relative importance index technique has been used for the analysis of questionnaire data. The top and base 15 delay factors were recognized. The top five delay factors were found to be: consequence of sub-surface circumstances (rock, water table, soil, etc.), design related clashes/faults, provide the furnished site to the contractor, scarcity of skilled labour, resource allocation related delay, etc.
