Factors Influencing the Delay of Road Construction Projects in Northern Mindanao, Philippines
Delayed construction project implementation is one of the most common problems that the government experiences all the time. With so many factors attributed in causing delayed infrastructure projects, there is a need to determine the most prevalent causes of the delay in project completion. This study evaluates the factors influencing the delay of road construction projects supervised by the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) in Northern Mindanao. A total number of 139 completed road projects during year 2016 with 25 contractors were evaluated. Findings revealed that there were four factors that caused the delay of road construction projects; these are (1) road right of way, (2) change in quantity, (3) peace and order and (4) heavy rain.
