THE ROLES OF STANDARDS AND PROJECT SIZE IN ROAD INVESTMENT APPRAISAL

This paper examines the roles of standards and project size in road investment strategies. It is argued that a critical examination of design standards for rural roads is essential in an environment of limited road funds. The economies to be derived from staging of road works in terms of both their size and quality (standard) are also canvassed. The final section of the paper questions the trend to higher standards when current infrastructure is unable to be adequately maintained. /Author/TRRL/
