Abstract

Managing a road construction projects in India are highly complex and are affected by various constraints. Numerous problems arise on a daily basis in the road construction sector, which are attributed to delays. Identifying these delays which are significantly influencing the projects and sorting it based on its importance is of great use in planning and managing the projects. Thus, the focus of this paper is to identify, rank, and assess the major delay cause factors in road construction projects based on the perception of the contractors who are involved in road constructions in the Mysore region, India. The data required for analysis was collected using a questionnaire survey among the contractors (82 responses). The identified delay cause factors and sub-delay factors were arranged in a hierarchical structure, which was then prioritized using two distinct methods viz. Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) and Relative Important Index (RII).
