ESTIMATING THE COST OF HIGHWAY MAINTENANCE

The paper describes the preparation and use of computerised schedule of rates system tailored to highway maintenance and improvement works. The system is designed to be "user friendly" so that the engineer inexperienced in computer operation can use the programs. Costs involved with pricing the schedule are kept to a minimum by having a two year contract period, with the opportunity to increase or decrease rates due to inflation every six months. The schedule is designed so that it can be priced by both DLOS and contractors and thus allows the county council to comply with the competition regulations of the local government planning and land act, 1980.
