ROAD MAINTENANCE BY CONTRACT. PROCEEDINGS, SIXTH CONFERENCE, ROAD ENGINEERING ASSOCIATION OF ASIA AND AUSTRALASIA, 4-10 MARCH 1990, KUALA LUMPUR, VOLUMES 1 TO 5 AND POST CONFERENCE PROCEEDINGS

In the present light of the privatisation of many State Government or Local Government functions, road maintenance by contract has been adopted or is being considered by a number of countries. This is generally encouraged by major funding organisations such as IBRD and ADB. Perceived benefits of privatising road maintenance include economy and improved road maintenance standards compared with that previously achieved by force account methods. This paper presents interim results of a study which is currently being undertaken in Belize, Central America, to compare the cost and effectiveness of road maintenance by contract with the traditional force account system. The project commenced in May 1989 and is scheduled for completion at the end of 1991. For the covering entry of the conference see IRRD 823206. (Author/TRRL)
